      Elemicin isomerization?  Bookmark   

How receptive would the elemicin molecule be to isomerization with KOH?  Would it end up as a big fat hairy ball of tar, or would it actually isomerize?  Has anyone actually tried it?

It is seductive, way too seductive.             -Eleusis

Gildermeister and Hoffman in Die ─therischen Íle 3d Ed, Vol I, 618 determined that the boiling point of isoelemicin is 155-6░C at 10mm Hg and it's density is 1.073 smile[image]
