CIE A Level Chemistry复习笔记7.8.2 Multi-step Synthetic Routes

Multi-Step Synthetic Routes

  • Many organic molecules are made in multi-step synthetic routes
  • Students should be able to recall the different reactions each functional group undergoes and apply this knowledge when devising multi-step synthetic routes for preparing organic molecules
  • These multi-step synthetic include reactions covered in the A level course in addition to those in the AS course

Analysis of Synthetic Routes

  • Students should be able to apply their knowledge on functional groups and their reactions by critically analysing a given synthetic route in terms of:
    • The type of reaction
    • The reagents used for each step
    • Any possible by-products
