there are two basic methods for preparation of salicyladehyde


1) reaction of phenol in presence of NaOH & CO2 ....

phenol + NaOH => phenoxide + CO2=> O Hydroxy benzoic acid

this is an important name reaction , KOLbes reaction ...


2)reaction of phenol in presence of strong base & carbon tetrachloride (CHCl3)

phenol + CHCl3 + NaOH => salisaldehyde...
