Facile preparation of symmetrical ethers fromtheir corresponding alcohols by Prayssler acid as amild and efficient catalyst

Author(s): H.Hassani, P.Jahandari

Etherification of different classes of alcohols was performed using catalytic amounts of Prayssler acid (H14NaP5W30O110). Preparation of symmetrical dibenzyl ethers especially bis(1-methyl 1- phenyl methyl)ether also proceeded well with high yields in the presence of catalytic amounts of Prayssler acid. This compound acts as a heterogeneous, efficient and a reusable catalyst when used in organic solvents.
