The investigations have shown that in naphthalene compounds: a. An influence is transmitted from one ring to the other. b. The behaviour of substituted aryl methyl bromides in the naphthalene series when substituents are present in the same ring is markedly similar to that of the corresponding compounds in the benzene series. c. Slight differences exist between the two aeries in the case of nuclear substituted halogen derivatives but, these are easily explicable by a theory based on the existence of tautomeric modifications in the naphthalene series. d. All the hydrolyses recorded are in accordance with the suggestion of Olivier, regarding the rates of hydrolysis of the bromides and substitution in the naphthalene nucleus.
