O-Alkylation of this hindered phenol by alkyl halides has been achieved using NaOH with micellar catalysis by (1-Hexadecyl)trimethylammonium bromide, A15235: Tetrahedron, 44, 6677 (1988). Alkylation of the Li salt with MeI occurs preferentially on carbon to give the dimer of 2,6,6-trimethyl-2,4-cyclohexadienone: Org. Synth. Coll., 5, 1092 (1973).
Addition of lithiated 2,6-dimethylphenyl esters of alkanoic acids to carbonyl compounds has been used in a highly diastereoselective synthesis of ß-hydroxy acids. In some cases, only one of the two possible diastereomers is formed. For list of examples, see: Org. Synth. Coll., 7, 190 (1990).
