CREMASCO, Marco Aurélio y BRAGA, Nazareno de Pina. Synthesis of piperonal from essential oil of long-pepper (Piper hispidinervium C. DC.). Acta Amaz. [online]. 2012, vol.42, n.2, pp. 275-278. ISSN 0044-5967. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0044-59672012000200014.
The essential oil of long-pepper (Piper hispidinervum C. DC) is rich in safrole, then susceptible to isomerization reaction to obtain cis, trans-isosafrole. In this paper it is presented the eletroxidation of cis, trans-isosafrole from direct isomerization of essential oil of long-pepper, with 99,7% of convertion to isosafrole glicol, that it is react by oxidation to convert 99% into piperonal with 84,9% purity.
