In order to get the best results from your organic chemistry experiments, it is important to use the correct organic product for the reaction shown. This can be a challenge, but by following these best practices, you can be sure to choose the right product every time.

In organic chemistry, there are a variety of reaction types that can be used to transform one molecule into another. These reaction types can be classified by the type of reagent used, the type of product formed, or the type of reaction mechanism involved.
One important way to classify reactions is by the type of organic product formed. The most common types of organic products are alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, esters, amides, and hydrocarbons. In this lesson, we will learn how to identify the type of organic product formed in a reaction based on the reactants and reagents used.
What is an organic product?
In organic chemistry, an organic product is generally any chemical compound that contains carbon. Due to carbon’s ability to catenate (form chains with other carbon atoms), millions of organic compounds are known. The study of the properties and synthesis of organic products is called organic chemistry.
The role of organic products in organic synthesis
Organic products play an important role in organic synthesis. By definition, organic synthesis is the construction of organic compounds through chemical reactions. In other words, it is the process of making one molecule from simpler starting materials.
Organic products are essential in this process because they are the molecules that are being constructed. Organic synthesis can be used to make a wide variety of molecules, including drugs, plastics, and dyes.
Organic products can be made from a variety of starting materials, but they must all be purchased from a chemical supply company. The most common starting materials are simple Organic molecules like methane (CH4) and ethane (C2H6).
More complex organic reactions may use starting materials that are not necessarily organic, such as inorganic compounds like sodium chloride (NaCl) or calcium carbonate (CaCO3). However, the vast majority of organic synthesis reactions use organic starting materials.
The main goal of organic synthesis is to create new molecules that have a specific function or purpose. For example, an organic chemist may be trying to make a new drug that can treat cancer. To do this, the chemist would need to design a molecule that would be able to bind to cancer cells and kill them.
In general, there are three main steps in organic synthesis:
1) Reaction planning: The chemist must first design the reaction that will be used to make the desired molecule. This step involves choosing the starting materials and then determining what steps will be needed to convert those starting materials into the desired product.
2) Reaction execution: The chemist then carries out the reaction by mixing the starting materials together and reacting them under controlled conditions (temperature, pressure, etc.).
3) Product purification: Finally, the chemist separates the desired product from any unreacted starting materials or other byproducts using techniques such as chromatography or crystallization.
How to draw the correct organic product
In order to draw the correct organic product for the reaction shown, you will need to know how to correctly identify the various reagents and products involved in the reaction. Once you have correctly identified the reagents and products, you will need to correctly determine the order in which they are arranged in the reaction. Finally, you will need to correctly orient the reagents and products in order to correctly depict the reaction.
In conclusion, there are four main types of organic reactions: addition, Elimination, Substitution, and rearrangement. The type of reaction will determine the organic product that is drawn.
