The operators at the chemical plant have been studying organic chemistry and have planned some syntheses using their new knowledge. You must check their work will give them the desired products and provide a resource to help them plan syntheses in the future.
Predict the products of the commercially important chemical reactions involving carbonyl compounds in the given examples in the task sheet. You have been provided with the starting materials and reaction conditions.
Plan two multi-step syntheses to obtain the given product from the starting material, both provided in the task sheet. You must draw the full displayed formula of any reactants, name the reactants and end products in each stage and provide the conditions required.
Produce an organised synthesis map of the reactions covered in this unit.
Your synthesis map should include details and relevant data relating to methods of synthesis e.g. environment, catalysts, specific techniques etc.
