In organic chemistry text books the feasibility of organic reactions is most often interpreted by the reactivity of the reactants. Basicity, acidity, nucleophylicity or electrophilicity are important factors that are considered. While the importance of the reactivity can’t be questioned, reactivity is not the only determining factor in the reactions. There are other important factors as energy and entropy.
