Organic synthesis

Preparation of complex molecules
Can make new structures


Identify functional groups in organic molecules

Use displayed formula, find functional groups


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


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


2 stage synthesis

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