The irradiation of 1,3-diarylpropanols in acidic methanol results in their conversion to the corresponding methyl ethers. This reaction and that of the photodechlorination of some 1,3-diarylpropanes is influenced by the presence of electron donating substituents in the aryl group remote from the reactive site.
