    • Abstract

       

      3-Methyl-gallic and myristicic acids have been synthesised by new methods. For this purpose vanillic acid is converted into its 5-aldehyde and oxidised with alkaline hydrogen peroxide to yield 3-methyl-gallic acid. Esterification, methylenation and hydrolysis give rise to a good yield of myristicic acid.
