The reaction between tri-p-tolyl phosphate and nonanoic acid has been studied at 260C in the absence of air. For an undiluted equimolar mixture the reactants are consumed within 24 hours giving a reaction mixture containing phenol and cresols, phosphoric acid species, small amounts of unidentified products, and an intractable tarry material. Two intermediate products were also identified p-tolylnonanoate and 2-hydroxy-5-methyl-nonaphenone. Their concentrations increase during the first 4 hours of reaction and then start to fall off. Free radical species of unidentified structure were detected during all stages of the reaction. Author
