The reactivity of o-hydroxybenzyl alcohol (o-HBA, 1), as a model compound for lignin, has been studied in various solvents between 390 and 560 K. Both in polar and apolar solvents the benzylic cation is the reactive intermediate. In alcoholic solvents, the benzylic cation reacts with the solvent to give the corresponding ethers. Relative reaction rates have(More)
