The tertiary glycols are
known as pinecones and are formed on the reduction of
Ketones with sodium amalgam.
The glycols are somewhat thick liquids, of
high boiling point, the pinecones only being crystalline
solids; they are readily soluble in water and alcohol,
but are insoluble in ether. By the action of dehydrating
agents they are converted into aldehydes or Ketones.
