You have been given the task of synthesizing 2 alcohols for your R&D boss at Alcohol Synthesizers Anonymous (sorry!). Listed below are the only reagents to which you have access. There is one problem - due to budget cutbacks you only have enough organic reagents for one synthesis which means you can only use an organic reagent from the table once (you can use any other reagent as many times as you want). A propene B Br 2 , light C ethanal D 1-butene E HBr, no peroxides F formaldehyde G 1-pentene H Mg metal I ethylene oxide J HBr, peroxides K propanal L aqueous acid Give the letter of the reagent you would use in sequence to effect this synthesis starting with the organic reagent which is the source of most of the carbons in the alcohol. You should need to put a reagent in each box. a) The first alcohol you need to synthesize is 1-heptanol. b) The second alcohol you need to synthesize is 1-pentanol. 2. –/4 points 2/3 submissions Notes Question: VSOrgChem5 8.kas.05.
