      BROMO SAFROLE  Bookmark   

Is ity possible to hydrolize Bromosafrole to MdP2POL With
NaOH Heat and H2O?

      probably.  Bookmark   

to increase reaction speed, you might either work with
an organic solvent/PTC system or in alcoholic solution.
hydrolysis also works in acidic medium (ie. dil. H2SO4).
you'll always get some elimination side-reaction.

now the $100.000-question is: why would you want to do
that? (halo-safrole => MDP2P?)

      bromosafrole won't give much mdp2pol  Bookmark   

That reaction sounds like you are going to get isosafrole as your major product (elimination instead of substitution).

../rhodium/chemistry /halide.carbonyl.html is much better, and if you really want MDP2Pol, reduce the product from this reaction.
