Aside from the patents issued by Bayer in the early 20th century,[‌23‌,‌24‌] preparation of tertiary alcohols from carboxylic acids has not been extensively described. Of note, however, is a general method published by Huston and Bailey,[‌25‌] in which 1 mole of acid in diethyl ether is added slowly to the Grignard reagent (3.3mol) and the mixture is refluxed on a water bath for 2hours. The authors note that adding the acid in benzene (200mL per mole of acid), distilling off the diethyl ether until the temperature reaches 83°C, and then refluxing for 2hours all increase the yield of tertiary alcohol produced. No workup procedure was given.
