It should pick up a hydrogen from the methylamine to produce the hydrochloric acid.

If idio is used  then it will produce HI Correct.  How could you go about extracting it.  Will the post reaction A/B with NaOH convert the HI to NaI which could be extracted from the remaining polar mix with acetone after evaporation and saved for a later time. This reaction seems pretty efficent.

"This reaction seems pretty efficent."

  I don't think it is. You'll get much better yields if you use an azide as the nucleophile, instead of ammonia or methylamine. All you need to do is reduce the safrole-azide with Mg or calcium. Total Synthesis 2 has all the info on this reaction that you need. 8)
