If your concern is the product not the science the easiest way to benzaldehyde beside buying it directly is reacting benzyl alcohol with bleach and Hcl acid as seen on youtube, the yields are remarkable if u can make a judgment call on the completion of the reaction. i made an amount of various aldehydes this way.

I suggest making benzyl chloride via radical chlorination and a subsequent sommelet reaction to form the benzaldehyde, I imagine this procedure would give far superior yields, although working with benzyl chloride is not the nicest thing in the world.

Has anyone actually tried the destructive distillation of calcium benzoate and calcium formate under vacuum or inert atmosphere (or it oxidized back to benzoic acid ).
Would definitely be worth trying.

If you consult more lit on that reaction, you will find that it only works for aliphatic and low molecular weight aldehydes....in any case it is stated outright that this is not a preparation method.
