"Be creative in your purchasing not synthesis, I'll admit this thread is very artistic i've thought of many of them over my 20 years in the bus. The man i apprenticed for and learned from, Nick Sand is a master of the conceptual synthesis, he invented many of the syntheses you describe. For him and mda.mdma it always came back to piperonal via the propene, me, I'm into wacker and alternatively the new rearrangement (84%+ one pot one step to mda four hours)."
