ORGANIC SYNTHESIS PROBLEMS
Try to solve these problems using common compounds that contain no more than 3 carbon atoms or benzene. You may use common solvents such as diethyl ether.
Remember that it is better to do these problems by working backwards. Ask yourself, how do I make the final functional group?Then decide how to synthesize the individual compounds needed for the last reaction.
