As it says, it describes the synthesis of carpacin (6-methoxy-3,4-methylenedioxy-1-allylben
great find Trypstar !
send this good pdf over to rhodium !
you find his present email-address at the end of his page:
this is good new material for a MMDA-2 section on
rhodium's page, that i suggested some days ago in Post 324781 (3base: "Re: does it give a % of the oil", Chemicals & Equipment).
