The purpose of this research is to study the reaction between ethyl alcohol and phenol over a chemically activated alumina catalyst at several temperatures. The reaction of phenol and ethyl alcohol is also studied over the support used in preparing the activated catalyst to determine the catalytic activity of the support. An attempt is also made to correlate the data obtained by previous workers at Union College, who have studied the reaction between phenol and methyl alcohol and the reaction between phenol and ethyl alcohol.
