**SYNTHESIS QUESTION: HELP NEEDED!**
Show the steps for the reagents for the following molecule
(Lexapro). I’ve figured out the synthesis for the molecule on the
right(in materials), but I can’t figure out how to create the other
benzene-based molecule with the nitrile attached that I need to
finish the whole molecule. I think that benzaldehyde needs to be
synthesized and then converted to an ester and then attached, but I
can’t figure out how starting from benzene.
Please show the steps of the reaction and label the reagents;
also indicate the name of the reaction/reaction type(ex. F Crafts
Acylations, hydrohalogenation, EAS, etc). The only Carbon sources
you can use (other than the part of the molecule I synthesized with
the fluorine on it) are benzene, alkanes with 3 or fewer carbons,
CO2, CO, and CN. Thanks for your help!!
