1

Organic synthesis

Preparation of complex molecules
Can make new structures

2

Identify functional groups in organic molecules

Use displayed formula, find functional groups

3

Predicting properties and reactions

Identify functional groups, predict properties and reactions
Suggest reactions of structure based on what each functional group reacts with and solubility

4

Target molecules

Describe compound that chemist tries to prepare by organic synthesis
Obtained by reacting readily available starting material with readily available reagent
Many steps needed

5

2 stage synthesis

Identify functional groups in starting and target molecule
Identify intermediate that links 2
State reagents and conditions for each step
