"Benzyl chloride is a moderately reactive halide. Substitution of the Cl⁻ by other nucleophiles, e.g., HO⁻, AcO⁻, S₂O₃⁻, Br⁻ etc. proceeds almost quantitatively in solutions at convenient temperatures ... The object of this study was to investigate if the less basic t̲-butoxide in t̲-butyl alcohol would afford the same product, viz., stilbene; and, if so, by what mechanism. A study of the products and kinetics of the interaction between benzyl chloride and potassium t̲-butoxide in t̲-butyl alcohol therefore has been initiated"--Introduction, page 1.
