Yes,I have a literature procedure, and I did carry it in a nitrogen atmosphere. I have also tried Huang Minlon modification,(Jacs 2002,page 4572-73) .
I have isolated the hydrazone. I want let it dry and then heat with KOH pellets and collect the distillate. I know that wolff kishner reduction is a single step process where the hydrazone is not isolated....just giving a try..
I am also trying with 1-methyl-pyrrole-2-carbaldehyde..
2-methylpyrrole is available commercially ,but in small quantities.
