Abstract: The nature of microwave effects during organic syntheses is still a matter of discussion. The present study covers the unknown issue that is an influence of microwave irradiation on reactions, in which one of substrates is able to intramolecular reorientation under microwave conditions. The reactions of triphenylmethanol (i.e., dehydratation and etherification), as an example of compound with active hydroxyl group, were investigated.
Keywords: Microwave irradiation, intremolecular reorientation, relaxation time, triphenylmethanol
