When tert-pentylbenzene is converted to a phenol through the benzyne mechanism, two products are formed. Construct a sequence of steps involving a diazonium ion such that only one of the products is produced.
Synthesize the following compound using toluene and naphthol as the starting reagents. (Hint: Identify the substituents and the order in which they can be added to each reactant.)
