    • Abstract


      Asaronic acid is conveniently prepared from 4-O-methyl-β-resorcylic acid and isovanillic acid by oxidatron with alkaline persulphate and subsequent methylation. Useful partial methyl ethers and mixed methyl-ethyl ethers are also made by adopting this method. Similarly asarylic aldehyde is obtained from 4-O-methyl-β-resorcylic aldehyde and isovanillin.
