Concept Focus Questions 1. Define "retrosynthesis." 2. Describe the retrosynthesis process used to design a multi-step organic synthesis. Use the example shown below. Convert into O H Concept Focus Questions Solutions 1. Retrosynthesis is the process of thinking backwards in synthesis design. We consider how a given target molecule is made from some precursor molecule, instead of starting with the given starting material. 2.
