Title: PROCESS FOR THE PREPARATION OF 1-(3,4-DIMETHOXYPHENYL)ETHANOL
Abstract:
The subject of our invention is the process for the preparation of the 1-(3,4-dimethoxypheny)ethanol of formula (I), by the reduction of 3,4-dimethoxyacetophenone of formula (II), characterized in that the carbonyl group of the 3,4-dimethoxyacetophenone of formula (II) is reduced by 1 mol of hydrogen under the conditions of catalytic hydrogenation.
