The acid-promoted conversion of 4,4-disubstituted cyclohex-2,5-dienol into substituted benzene is generally known as the dienol-benzene rearrangement. This reaction is catalyzed only by H+ in acetate, formate, and phosphate buffers and the rearrangement for 4-methyl-4-trichloromethyl cyclohex-2,5-dienol has been found to be first-order kinetics. This reaction is helpful for introducing aromaticity into the A-ring of steroids.
