0 rg a n i c C h e mi s t r y , Action of Organo-magnesium Compounds on Acetylcarbinol and its Esters. ANDR& KLING (Bull. Xoc. chim" 1904, [iii], 31, [16][17][18][19].-Acetylcarbinyl acetate (1 mol.) and magnesium ethyl bromide (1 mol.) react in presence of anhydrous ether to give methyldiethylcarbinol and the monoacetin of /3-methylbutylene up-glycol. Acetylcarbinyl benzoate (1 mol.) and magnesium ethyl bromide (4 mols.) give phenyldiethylcar binol, magnesium benzoate and P-methylbutylene

These facts show that the esters of acetylearbinyl behave as ketones ; anhydrous acetylcarbinol reacts as a ketone, and would therefore seem to have a different constitution from that contained in solution. s. s.
