Abstract

The Norrish type I and type II reactions of alkylbenzoin ethers, alkyldeoxybenzoins and α-alkyldibenzyl ketones included within the microporous structures of zeolites X and Y have been investigated. Product distributions varied significantly from that observed in benzene. In addition, it differed between various alkali-metal cation-exchanged samples. These variations are interpreted to result from the restriction offered by the zeolite micropores on the motions of the adsorbed organic molecule. Although this study is restricted to ketones, the knowledge gained is expected to be of general value.
