This looks interesting smile

Patent US3379768

Abstract :

Hydratropic aldehyde is prepared by ozonizing the linear dimer of styrene and decomposing with a palladium catalyst in an aqueous medium containing suitable organic solvents. The hydratropic aldehyde is separated from benzaldehyde, which is also produced by the present process, in a pure state suitable for use in perfumes.

And what can hydratropic aldehyde be easily converted to ???? yes P2P wink

Most organic ozonides are explosive, as for the ozonide formed here I just can't say either way.

I can only assume that the palladium used decomposes the ozonide in a controlled tame fashion.

Ozone can be easy generated by exposing oxygen to ultra violet light, see here for more info :

If this ozonide stage could be replaced by another method, we would have ourselves a great bulk method for the production of P2P using easily available chemicals.

Can anybody describe how a "Flash Distillation" is performed ?

Ozone is bubbled though a solution of the alkene in carbon tetrachloride.

Oxidation of alkenes through ozonides.

Ozonolysis of an olefin :


Comment :

So it seems that palladium can be replaced with sulphuric acid (according to patent), or the reduction/degradation can be performed with Zinc powder.
