An attempt was made to prepare picryl methanesulfonate, starting with 2,4-dinitrophenyl- and 2,6- dinitrophenyl methanesulfonate, picric acid and picryl chloride.
The methanesulfonation of 4,6-dinitro-2-sec. butylphenol, 2,4-dinitrophenol, and p-nitrophenol was carried out by reacting the phenols with methanesulfonyl chloride in pyridine solution.
A competition study was made by reacting simultaneously two different phenols, each in molar quantity, with one mole of methanesulfonyl chloride.
