The purpose of this SIP was to study the influence of reaction conditions upon the intramolecular alkylation of aryldiazonium salts. Intramolecular alkylation occurred most readily in a cold, acidic medium. It also occurred in an aprotic medium, but in only modest yield. With the introduction of HCl by means of the hydrochloride 2,5-di-i-butyl-aniline hydrochloride the yield of 2-methyl-5-i-butylbenzene in the aprotic medium doubled.
