1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

The Conversion of Isosafrole to Piperonal and Anethole to Anisaldehyde: Electrochemical Active Manga

The Conversion of Isosafrole to Piperonal and Anethole to Anisaldehyde: Electrochemical Active Manga

    The Conversion of Isosafrole to Piperonal and Anethole to Anisaldehyde: Electrochemical Active Manganese Dioxide

    Abstract:
    Non-stoichiometric manganese dioxide prepared electrochemically at room temperature and
    suspended in dilute sulphuric acid is used to oxidise isosafrole to piperonal in 54% isolated yield. The manganese dioxide-manganese(II) sulphate system can be recycled electrochemically at high current density. It has the further advantage that water-soluble materials derived from the chemical oxidation step can be removed by filtration at the manganese dioxide stage. Direct oxidation of isosafrole at a lead
    dioxide anode leads to further oxidation of the piperonal.
