Chloride I $(R=Cl, R_1=CMe_3)$, obtained from $2,4-Me_2C_6H_3OH$, was converted into the cyanomethylphenols I $(R=cyano, R_1=H, CMe_3)$ depending on the experimental conditions and both gave I $(R=CO_2H, R_1=H)$. I $(R=CO_2H, R_1 =H)$ gave I $(R=CO_2H, R_1=OH)$ via the 1,2-benzoquinone by iodoxybenzene oxidation, reductive acetylation and hydrolysis.
