Organic Synthesis

AQA Content

Explain why chemists aim to design processes that do not require a solvent and that use non-hazardous starting materials
Explain why chemists aim to design production methods with fewer steps that have a high percentage atom economy
Use reactions in this specification to devise a synthesis, with up to four steps, for an organic compound.

Specification Notes

The formation of new organic compounds by multi-step syntheses using reactions included in the specification is covered in this section.
The synthesis of an organic compound can involve several steps.
