Advanced Organic Chemistry Problems

Mechanism Problems

        For these problems, you should follow the instructions given for each individual reaction, which usually involves drawing a likely mechanism and explaining or predicting any issues of selectivity.

Roadmap Problems
        For these problems, you should provide reasonable possibilities for the missing reagents and/or structures of synthetic intermediates. Additionally, you should familiarize yourself with the mechanism of all reactions as well as explain any particularly high or low levels of selectivity that are associated with the given transformations.
