Abstract

Recent observation /1,4/ on the existence and unreactivity of IV under basic conditions, as well as its part in the inhibitory effect on the decomposition into deoxybenzoin is unequivocally proved by comparing the decompositions of I and VI. It is also shown that the decomposition of I is detemined neither by the character of the solvent nor by the nucleophilic character of the reactant, but by the possibility of the formation of IV.
