3.14 Organic synthesis and analysis (A2)
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.
Students should be able to:
- use reactions in this specification to devise a synthesis, with up to four steps, for an organic compound
- be able to identify organic functional groups using the reactions in the specification, including the identification of organic functional groups by test-tube reactions.
