CHEM 331, Organic Chemistry I


This flow chart for reactions covers Chapt. 1-10 in the text, and it may be useful for seeing an overview of the reactions. This chart does not necessarily contain all the reactions in the text, and most reagents are not given. Other features, such as orientation of addition reactions and carbocation rearrangements, have been omitted. The direction of the arrows is correct. You might find it useful to complete the chart by adding reagents, etc. Note the central role of alcohols and alkenes in the preparation of most functional groups.
