Following is an outline of a synthesis of the bronchodilator carbuterol, a beta-2 adrener-gic blocker with high selectivity for airway smooth muscle receptors. (a) Propose reagents to bring about each step.(b) Why is it necessary to add the benzyl group, PhCH2, as a blocking group in Step 1?(c) Suggest a structural relationship between carbuterol and ephedrine.(d) Is carbuterol chiral? If so, which of the possible stereoisomers are formed in thissynthesis?
