  • Page ID
  • After you have completed Chapter 8, you should be able to

    1. fulfill all of the detailed objectives listed under each section.
    2. design a relatively simple, multistep synthesis using the reactions introduced in this chapter, given the structure, name, or both, of the starting material and product. For example, show how you would convert 1-bromobutane to

      butanediol structure

    3. deduce the structures of a number of compounds involved in a certain reaction sequence, given sufficient information. In other words, solve so-called road-map problems.
    4. define, and use in context, the key terms introduced in this chapter.
