A number of tetralone derivatives have been subjected to a base-induced benzylic hydroxylation procedure. In cases where aromatization was possible it occurred whilst, in those cases where aromatization was prevented, hydroxylation appeared to have occurred. However, dehydration or oxidation products were generally the only ones isolated. Where a successful hydroxylation product was indeed isolated, the yield proved to be poor.
