Abstract

Much of practical organic chemistry is concerned with what is generally called ‘preparative’ or ‘synthetic’ work, in which the objective is to carry out a chemical reaction, or a series of reactions, to produce a particular chemical compound in a pure state in as high a yield as possible. Such processes form the basis of the highly successful chemical industry, producing an enormous number of chemicals ranging from the simple compounds used in plastics and polymers to the highly complex compounds used in medicine.
