I'm pretty sure that it should go the same as the wurtz reaction but I wouldn't quote me on it I'm not very good at predicting outcomes for these

Well the problem is that OH group. Why would it even act like a halogen, thats what I dont understand

@Zale101 might know, @Photon336 I don't think photon is on but maybe they might be able to help

OH has the -1 charge like halogens

@Zale101 it was worth a shot I thought, I've taken two classes in ochem and it still confuses me but photon was wanting more ochem stuff on here so that might be your best bet

My guess is the sodium metal will remove the hydrogen off the alcohol group and it will react as a Williamson ether synthesis.

Ok I have thought about this and here's my suggested mechanism. It's weird because it uses nucleophillic aromatic substitution going through a benzyne intermediate. Yes you're hearing right haha. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nucleophilic_aromatic_substitution http://www.chemtube3d.com/Aromatic_Sub_Benzyne.html Here's my mechanism. Bz- is short for Benzyl and Ph- is short for Phenl. |dw:1439617899345:dw|
