The Synthesis of 2-acetyl-1,4-naphthoquinone: A Multi-step Synthesis.
Green, Ivan R.
Journal of Chemical Education, v59 n8 p698-99 Aug 1982
Outlines 2 procedures for synthesizing 2-acetyl-1,4-naphthoquinone to compare relative merits of the two pathways. The major objective of the exercise is to demonstrate that certain factors should be considered when selecting a pathway for synthesis including availability of starting materials, cost of reagents, number of steps involved, equipment, and yields.
