All of the other syntheses begin with 3,4,5-trimethoxybenzaldehyde. According to one of them, condensation of 3,4,5-trimethoxybenzaldehyde with 3-ethoxy- or 3-anilinopropionitrile gives the corresponding benzylidene derivative (33.1.52), which upon direct reaction with guanidine gives trimethoprim [48-51].
