FOCUS OF SHOWCASE 1: The Enamorment of Natural Products & Organic Syntheses!


Your task is to apply your knowledge to a couple of natural
product syntheses….and perhaps daydream about some other
potential outcomes as you ponder structures.

In this Enamorment ShowCase, you will investigate syntheses as
applied to natural products:
• To rationalize reaction outcomes
• To predict specified reaction outcomes
• To validate product formation
• To evaluate structures, plus more!


As you begin this ShowCase, admire the beauty of these two
natural products – cool structures!

• Cloven: isolated from clove oil
• Longifolene: isolated from pine resins




Be prepared to become (even more!) enamored with organic synthesis and our natural world that
supplies such lovely compounds!

Question 2: Focus on Funk’s Synthesis!

GOAL of Question 2: To dig somewhat deep into Dr.
Funk’s synthetic route by investigating two steps (out
of the 9 steps) of this route. Be ready to fill in details
about this route, discuss naming of compounds, and
ponder other potential reactions using the given
structures in the route.

2a. Let’s start with compound A and IUPAC naming,
fun!
• The highest priority family in compound A is the
_________________________________. (2 pts)
• The parent chain is the (circle one): (2 pts)
6-membered ring / Et
• Based on IUPAC rules and the priority naming
chart, the correct IUPAC name for compound A
is (circle one): (3 pts) 2b. Circle the 2 most electrophilic sites in
o 5-ethoxycyclohex-5-enone compound A (on the right here). (2 pts)
o 3-ethyoxycyclohex-2-enone 2c. Briefly describe how compound A is
o 1-cyclohex-1-enylethane changing into compound B in STEP A: (3 pts)
o 1-ethoxycyclohexen-3-one

2d. For STEP A to occur, reagent A is (draw out the specific reagent in the box below): (3 pts)

2e. Show the connection! Reference the reaction in the Unit 1C worksheet that
supports your answer. To do so, draw out that example here and give the page
number of the worksheet. (4 pts)














Now onto STEP B of Funk’s route!

2f. The reagent, Me2CuLi, is a ______________________ (name)
reagent. It is considered to be a ( hard / soft ) (electrophile
/ nucleophile ). For this reason, it will add to the ( carbonyl
carbon / alpha carbon / beta carbon ) of compound B’. (4

2g. Draw the complete electron-pushing mechanism of STEP B; start with the structure of compound B’ and finish with the
structure of compound C. Be sure to include all electron-pushing arrows, intermediates, and formal charges where appropriate.
You can assume a hydronium work-up. (6 pts) Please draw compound C in the empty box above (page 5) as well. (3 pts)

2h. Hmmm…..compound A is an interesting structure. Let us ponder this question:
What if a soft nucleophile reacted with compound A?

Consider the given reaction scheme shown here:

Your job is to rationalize the
formation of compound Z from
compound A with the use of a soft
nucleophile.







• Describe what is
o Changing from compound A to compound Z: (2 pts)





o Not changing from compound A to compound Z: (2 pts)

• 2h (continued) Now, use your CHEM 212 knowledge to:
(a) propose a reasonable mechanism that accounts for this transformation. Start with the structure of compound A and
finish with the structure of compound Z. Be sure to include all electron-pushing arrows, intermediate structures, and
formal charges where applicable. (6 pts)
(b) Support your proposed mechanism by giving a reaction and its mechanism from our Unit 1C worksheet that best
aligns/has similar features to your proposed mechanism. Please give the page # of Unit 1C worksheet that you are
referencing. (6 pts)

For your answers to parts (a) and (b), write them out side-by-side to show best this comparison.

Question 3: Focus on Johnson’s
Synthesis!

GOAL of Question 3: To dig somewhat deep into
Dr. Johnson’s synthetic route by investigating
Steps 1-4 of this route. Be ready to fill in details
about this route and consider spectral data to
distinguish structures.

STEP 2!
3b. Given that CH3Li is a ( neutral / anionic )
nucleophile, this reaction is a polar ( acidic / basic
/ neutral ) reaction. So, intermediate 2 is ( neutral
/ anionic / cationic ) and can therefore act as a(n)
( electrophile / nucleophile ). Intermediate 2
reacts with Br2, which must serve as a(n)
( electrophile / nucleophile ). (5 pts)

3c. Draw the structure of intermediate 2 of STEP
2 in the empty box below. (3 pts)

3d. Draw the complete mechanism of the reaction between intermediate
2 and bromine to yield compound 3. Include all details – you know the
