Bachelor of Science
Diarryl ethers have been prepared by various candidates for master's and bachelor's degrees at Union College in the past. Ulmann reactions were involved, but with some variability in yields and some rather lengthy syntheses. More recently, decompositions of diazonium salts have been studied for preparation of aryl ethers. This might constitute a simpler or more efficient synthetic route.
