Please fill in the missing component(s) for each of the following reactions. For reactions missing the reagents, more than one set of reagents may be required. CO 2 H CH 2 I 2 , Zn/Cu 1. CH 3 C(O)Cl, AlCl 3 2. CH 3 Li Br 2 , FeBr 3 , OH CF 3 OH 4 Problem 3 (25 points). Please propose a synthesis of the styrene derivative shown below, beginning with anisole. You may use any additional neutral organic reagents (and any inorganic reagents) you need. Remember that electrophilic aromatic alkylation does not work with alkenyl halides because sp 2-hybridized cations can not be formed. H 3 CO ? H 3 CO CH 3 CH 2 5 Problem 4 (25 points). Here are a few from the homework/supplementary problems. Cl CH 3 O H 3 CO O CH 3 N PhMgBr (2 equiv.) Br CH 3 1. Li 2. CuI 3. H 3 C-CH 2-CH 2-CH 2 I Cl O H 3 CO H 3 CO AlCl 3 , 6 7...
