The purpose of this work was the stereochemical study of the photochemical solvolytic reaction of 3,5-dimethoxybenzoic acid, optically active 3,5-dimethoxy-α-d-benzyl alcohol was prepared. The specific rotation of the alcohol was compared to the alcohol produced from the photochemical solvolytic reaction of 3,5-dimethoxy-α-d-benzyl acetate.
