Question: Give reagents that would result in the organic transformations illustrated. In each case name the functional group. Answer: Provides the expected reagents for each transformation. Please see the attached "Word" file for synthetic sequences. (Brainmass Problem 8)
The Problem gives a starting material, a target X and a proposed intermediate. Suggest a synthetic sequence to the target. The answer details a route to the target compound, covering some well known organic reactions.
Please see the attached file for chemical structures (Brainmass Problem 7). Problem: Suggest a five step synthetic sequence to give compound X
Problem: A method used to protect Esters and Acids. Solution: Gives product X and the mechanism of the second step.
Please see the attached "Word" document for structures (Brainmass Problem 5). Identify the product X. The first step is trivial ( though it is well worth practising a mechanism for completeness). Please give a detailed mechanism for the second step in the formation of the protecting group.
Organic compounds A and B react to give X under basic conditions, via a well known reaction. The solution will guide you through the mechanism from A and B and provide the name of this key reaction.
Please see the attached file for structural information (Brainmass Problem 4). 1) What types of compounds are A and B. 2) What is the name of the mechanism by which X is formed? 3) Write a detailed mechanism showing the formation of X.
Identify the missing compounds in the sequence. Suggest detailed mechanisms for each transformation.
Please see the attached "Word" file for structural information. Suggest a synthetic route to intermediate X given the reagents and conditions in the attachment. For step b-e provide a detailed mechanism.
Calculating the molecular formula of an organic compound. Worked example, using fundamental formula and balanced equations.
 1 dm3 of hydrocarbon A at 1 atmosphere pressure is shown to have a mass of 2.333g. Given that the molar volume of a gas at S.T.P (ie 25°C, 1 atm) is 24 dm3. Please answer the following: 1) Calculate the molecular formula of A 2) A is a member of which homologous series?  15 cm3 of a mixture of
I have a nitrobenzene ring which I need to add two substituents...COOCH3 in the meta (#4) position and Iodine in the "other" meta position (#6) (the second Carbon after the ester). The nitro group needs to be taken off as well. I can't seem to find any reference materials on what reagrents can be used. Can you please advise?
How can I synthesize 3-fluoroanisole using benzene and any other compounds containing 4 carbons or less (and any inorganic reagents you wish)?
