A process for producing an aromatic aldehyde compound has steps of converting alkyl-substituted or non-substituted benzene into a compound of formula (I; R1 = H, Me, Et, iso-Pr, iso-Bu, or tert-butyl; X = halogen) by halomethylation, and allowing the compound of formula I and alkyl aldehyde to react in presence of phase transfer catalyst represented by formula of tetraalkylammonium halide (II; R4, R5, R6 = C1-6 alkyl) at a reaction temperature under alkaline condition to obtain the aromatic aldehyde compound. Thus, 2.3 g NaOH, 0.26 g (4-tert-butylbenzyl)trimethylammonium bromide (phase transfer catalyst, preparation given), 7.5 mL water, 4.2 mL toluene, 1 mL THF were mixed in a flask and then heated to 70-75 degree C. A mixture of 10 g 4-tert-butylbenzyl bromide and 3.55 g propanal was added into the flask dropwise within 2 h while the reaction mixture was vigorously stirred. The reaction mixture was stirred at 70-75 degree C for 3 h to give, after workup and vacuum distillation, 7.43 g lysmeral (III) (82.6% yield and 97.27% purity) as compared to 53.8% yield when tetrabutylammonium iodide was used as the catalyst.
