14 C synthesis strategies, Chem 315/316 / Beauchamp 1 Use clues in the target molecule to determine what the last step could have been. Once you work back one step, use clues in that molecule to determine how you could work back one additional step. Repeat this process until you get to the necessary starting conditions, i.e. allowable 14 C starting units (*CH 4 , *CO 2 , Na*CN where “*” indicates a radioactive 14 C isotope). Until aromatic chemistry is covered bromobenzene is also available.
