Chemistry and Pharmacology
Bromination of the disubstituted 4,5-dimethyl-1,3-cyclohexanedione (6) followed by oxidation of the resulting 3-bromo-5,6-dimethyl-2-cyclohexen-1-ones (7) gave 5-bromo-2,3-dimethylphenol (1) together with its constitutional isomer 3. The structure of 1 was secured by a x-ray analysis of its tosyl derivative 8.
