Diazo: Retrosynthesis

Concept: Concept: Proposing Aromatic Synthesis

Video Transcript

Now we're going to get some practice proposing aromatic synthesis specifically diazo replacement reactions.
So as you guys know, a big part of this topic is being able to turn a smaller benzene into a bigger one. We must use our knowledge of sequence groups and blocking groups to plan out our synthesis in the correct order.
So guys, you should have already had some practice with this at this point. So I'm going to leave these up to you completely. Go ahead and try to do this one from scratch with everything you know about diazo and then I'll step in and show you guys the answer. So go for it.
