A procedure yielding pure 2-(1-methylnonyl)phenol (1) as a colorless oil is presented. An oven-dried Schlenk flask with a Teflon-coated magnetic stir bar and a reflux condenser with a three-way stopcock is primarily used as paraphernalia. A discussion on ortho-monoalkylated phenol derivatives as important bioactive compounds and functional materials concludes the chapter.
