When you’re trying to determine the major organic product of a reaction, it’s important to draw out all of the possible products and then figure out which one is the most stable. Follow these steps and you’ll be able to do it like a pro!

In synthetic chemistry, the major organic product of a reaction is the most abundant organic compound that is formed by the chemical reaction of two or more substances. The major product is usually the desired product of the reaction and is often used to determine the optimal conditions for the reaction. In some cases, the major product can be an undesired by-product, and in these cases, it is important to determine how to minimize its formation.
Theoretical yield is the maximum amount of product that can be obtained from a given amount of reactant. It is calculated by using the stoichiometric ratios from the balanced chemical equation. The actual yield is typically lower than the theoretical yield, due to factors such as incomplete reactions, side reactions, and losses during purification.
In order to calculate the percent yield of a reaction, you need to know the actual yield and the theoretical yield. The actual yield is the amount of product that is actually produced in the reaction. The theoretical yield is the amount of product that would be produced if the reaction went to completion. Percent yield is calculated by dividing the actual yield by the theoretical yield and multiplying by 100.
For example, if you have a reaction that has a theoretical yield of 100 grams and an actual yield of 80 grams, your percent yield would be 80%.
To calculate percent yield, you need to know two things:
-Theoretical Yield: This is the amount of product that would be produced if the reaction went to completion. In other words, if there was no loss of reactant or product during the course of the reaction, this is the amount you would expect to see at the end.
-Actual Yield: This is the amount of product that was actually produced in the reaction. This will be less than or equal to the theoretical yield because there are always losses due to side reactions, incomplete reactions, etc.
The amount of product that can be formed in a chemical reaction is limited by the amount of reactant. The reactant that limits the amount of product that can be formed is called the limiting reactant. In other words, the limiting reactant is the reactant that runs out first. It “limits” the amount of product that can be made.
If one of the reactants is in excess, the amount of product formed will be limited by the amount of the other reactant. The reaction will continue until one of the reactants is used up. Theoretically, any ratio of starting materials could be used, but in practice, it is usually desirable to use slightly more than the stoichiometric amount of one reactant so that the other can be used up completely. If this is not done, unreacted starting material must be separated from the product, which is wasted and uneconomical
The Newman projection is a common way to visualize the conformation of molecules. In this guide, we have shown you how to draw the Newman projection for a given molecule in its most stable conformation. We hope that this guide has helped you better understand how to draw the major organic product of the reaction.
