Rates of alcoholysis of A-ring substituted o-benzoylbenzoyl chlorides I $(R=H, Me, Br, NO_2)$ with 10% methanol, 10% ethanol, 50% isopropanol, and 50% cyclohexanol in acetone medium have been measured. The Hammett p-values range from -2.2 to -0.76. These results have been interpreted as evidence for transition states which vary gradually in their degree of charge separation and have features of both $SN_1$ and $SN_2$ reactions.
