Protocatecualdehyde > Piperonal ?


I've read through a few forums and articles regarding this methylenation but i'm just trying to get the most accurate information when completing this.

For Instance;
https://erowid.org/archive/rhodium/chemistry/methylenation.h...

Is there anyway around using the autoclave other then using dibromomethane to replace in the process or is there any other method that would work as an alternative.

This seems the easiest, most of the chemicals are quite easy to obtain and reasonably priced for my country / within laws except the end product.

Any advice ?

May be this article will be interesting for you.:)

Also @Bipolar posted an interesting work up about the methylenation of 5-hydroxy vanillin to Myristicinaldehyde using DCM here: http://www.sciencemadness.org/talk/viewthread.php?tid=147026...

That last paper is sweet, I am pretty sure that I have multiple copies of it.
Still rocks.

Use conditions similar to described here - http://www.sciencemadness.org/talk/viewthread.php?tid=147026...
And for work-up - just dilute reaction mixture with water and do a steam distillation, as piperonal is very volatile with steam.

Protocatechualdehyde methylenation isn't difficult to do with dichloromethane in DMSO.
See the attached pdf of the method I posted here 5 yrs back.
