Ullmann Reaction - Organic chemistry

It is not clear from this however, how the chemistry might be done! Therefore just being given the starting materials is not sufficient to help plan a synthesis.
Note the importance of CCBFR.

Reactions are usually straightforward (SEAr) and you will have met most of them before. Synthesis is simplified because the nature of the starting materials is usually clear. Thus, most reactions correspond to the following disconnection:

Lactone-Synthesis and Reaction-Examples and Uses | Chemistry

Also FGI’s often correspond to some simple types of reaction e.g. reduction (NO2 to NH2), oxidation (CH3 to COOH), diazonium chemistry (NH2 N2+ Ar-X).

Clearly you will need a good knowledge of your basic chemistry and an appreciation of reaction mechanisms, directing effects etc.

The use of such enolate anions from carbonyl compounds is fundamental to organic synthesis and you will already have met them as intermediates in the Aldol reaction and Claisen condensation.
