Regioselective dialkylation of naphthalene

Smith, Keith and Roberts, Simon D. 2000. Regioselective dialkylation of naphthalene. Catalysis Today 60 (3-4) , pp. 227-233. 10.1016/S0920-5861(00)00339-4

The alkylation of naphthalene using tert-butanol in cyclohexane over a dealuminated H-Mordenite (HM) zeolite has been optimised to give a 60% yield of 2,6-di-tert-butylnaphthalene with a 2,6/2,7 ratio of over 50. This has been achieved by varying the reaction time, temperature, pressure, solvent, amount of tert-butanol, solvent and catalyst, Si/Al ratio of the catalyst, and the mode of addition.
