The reaction is [[red underline]] strongly exothermic. [[/red underline]] At first it is very easy to melt together saligenin and hexatriphenol, provided I kept below certain temperatures there was quiet fusion both substances [[red underline]] mix perfectly [[/red underline] and the mixture is liquid at temperatures only slightly above average temperatures: This mixture solidifies in cooling and is soluble in alcohol with small amount of acetone in it.
Heated at higher temperatures [[red underline]] bubbles [[/red underline]] begin to escape and [[red underline]] exothermic [[/red underline]] reaction sets in. If operation is not controled self-heating brings about the final infusible product - [[red underline]] very porous [[/red underline]] on account of bubbles. However
