Problem 40SP

The following drugs are synthesized using the methods in this chapter and in previous chapters. Devise a synthesis for each, starting with any compounds containing no more than six carbon  atoms.

(a) Phenacetin, used with aspirin and caffeine in pain-relief medications.

(b) Methamphetamine, once considered a safe diet pill, but now known to be addictive and destructive to brain tissue.

(c) Dopamine, one of the neurotransmitters in the brain. Parkinson’s disease is thought to result from a dopamine deficiency.
