    • Abstract


      Based on considerations of biogenesis asarone is now synthesised from isochavibetol by para nuclear oxidation with alkaline persulphate and subsequent methylation. Isochavibetol needed for this purpose is conveniently prepared by the condensation isovanillin with propionic anhydride and sodium propionate.
