Synthesis and Spectroscopic Analysis of a Cyclic Acetal: A Dehydration Performed in Aqueous Solution  David M. Collard, Adolphus G. Jones, and Robert M. Kriegel
Treatment of pentaerythritol with benzaldehyde in aqueous acid to produce the monoacetal, 5,5-bis(hydroxymethyl)-2-phenyl-1,3-dioxane. The reaction has a number of interesting features: the isolated product is the monobenzal not the dibenzal, and the reaction, a dehydration, is performed in water.
