Homogeneous glycol ether derivatives of phenyl group substituted alcohols (benzyl-, β-phenyl ethyl- and γ-phenyl propyl-) were synthesised by repeated Williamson synthesis starting in two cases from the halogen derivatives of the corresponding alcohols. In the case of β-phenylethanol the first homologue was prepared in the reaction of benzyl group protected ethylene chlorohydrine and β-phenyl-ethyl alcohol. The reaction product was hydrogenolysed (removing the benzyl group by hydrogenolyzis), halogenated and used to the synthesis of higher homologues as starting material.
