Synthesize the following compound. You may also use any organic compounds containing three or less carbon atoms, benzene, N-bromosuccinimide, triphenylphosphine, meta-chloroperbenzoic acid (MCPBA), methylvinyl ketone, lithium diisopropylamide (LDA), ethyl acetoacetate (acetoacetic ester) and diethyl malonate (malonic ester), as well as any inorganic reagents.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 6, 2023, 1:21 pm ad1c9bdddf

Aromatic chemistry is a real toughie as there are so many ways of carrying out a given transformation. It's all about the directing ability of different groups attached to the benzene core. As such, I have attached two ways that you might be able to tackle this synthesis. Both use standard reactions which work. I have listed the names where appropriate so you can look them up and see what's going on. I guess the route that you choose will depend on which is most similar to the kind of stuff that you have encountered in your course.
