First of all from butane you may produce the corresponding aldehyde
С4Н10 + О2 (450 °C, 1—2 МPа, AlPO4) → С4Н8О + Н2O;
then synthesize benzene halogenide
C6H6 + Cl2 = C6H5Cl + HCl
The following reactions will be the reaction of the Grignard
C6H5Cl + Mg = C6H5ClMg
C6H5ClMg + С4Н8О (H2O) = C6H5(OH)С4Н8
