Show a forward synthesis for the following retrosynthesis problem.
Draw mechanisms for the following reactions. Use curved arrows to show electron flow for each step, and draw out all reactants to effectively show all arrow pushing.
1. NaOEt EtOH
Show a retrosynthesis and forward synthesis for the following reaction. Using Clayden, Chapter 28 as a guide, break bonds stepwise (use the squiggly line in ChemDraw to indicate the bonds you’re breaking in each step). Draw a detailed retrosynthesis that combines no more than 2 steps in one arrow and traces back to the reagents shown. Then, use your retrosynthesis to show the forward synthesis of the compound.
These solutions may offer step-by-step problem-solving explanations or good writing examples that include modern styles of formatting and construction
of bibliographies out of text citations and references. Students may use these solutions for personal skill-building and practice.
