Introduction

In organic chemistry, the products of a reaction are drawn as models consisting of atoms and bonds. These models typically show only the structural features that are important for understanding the reaction. The vast majority of organic reactions involve the formation or breakage of carbon-carbon bonds, so most product drawings will consist mainly of carbon and hydrogen atoms.

What is an organic product?

In order for a product to be classified as organic, it must contain at least 94% organic ingredients by weight.

Organic products are grown without the use of synthetic pesticides, herbicides, or fertilizers. Animals that provide organic meat, poultry, eggs, and dairy products are not given hormones or antibiotics.

Organic food is often more expensive than non-organic food because organic farms typically have higher production costs. The extra cost of organic foods reflects these higher production costs and the added value that consumers place on food that is produced without synthetic pesticides, herbicides, and fertilizers.

How to determine the organic product of a reaction

The organic product of a reaction is the molecule that is produced when an organic compound reacts with another organic or inorganic compound. To determine the organic product of a reaction, you will need to know the starting materials, the reagents, and the conditions of the reaction. The organic product can be determined by looking at the structure of the starting materials and reagents, and using this information to predict how they will interact.

The role of the organic product in the reaction

In organic chemistry, the organic product is the molecule(s) that is formed as a result of an organic reaction. The organic product is what we are interested in when we are studying organic reactions. It is important to know how to identify the organic product in a reaction so that you can predict the outcome of the reaction and determine the mechanism.

The organic product can be either the reactant or the product of the reaction. In some reactions, both the reactant and product are organic compounds. In other reactions, one or both of the reactants may be inorganic. The type of reaction will determine whether the organic product is the reactant or product of the reaction.

The role of the organic product in the reaction will also determine how it is formed. The organic product may be formed by direct attack of an electron-deficient reagent on an electron-rich substrate, by nucleophilic attack of a nucleophile on an electrophile, or by nucleophilic attack of a nucleophile on a carbocation. The mechanism will also determine how many molecules of products are formed. In some reactions, only one molecule of product is formed, while in others multiple molecules are produced.

Summary

In order to draw the organic product(s) of a reaction, you will need to know the reactants, the reagents, and the conditions. The reactants are what you start with and the reagents are what you use to make the reaction happen. The conditions are things like temperature, pressure, and solvent. Once you have this information, you can use it to draw the organic product(s) of the reaction.

  How to Draw the Major Organic Product of the Following Reaction

To start, look at the reactants and determine what functional groups are present. Functional groups are collections of atoms that have a specific chemical identity and react in predictable ways. Common functional groups include alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids, amines, and aromatic rings. Once you know which functional groups are present in the reactants, you can predict how they will react with each other and with the reagents under the given conditions.

Next, look at the reagents and determine which ones will be used in the reaction. For example, if the reaction is an addition reaction, then you will need a reagent that can add atoms or groups of atoms to the reactants. If the reaction is a substitution reaction, then you will need a reagent that can replace atoms or groups of atoms in the reactants. Reactions can also be combo reactions that involve more than one type of reagent.

Finally, consider the conditions under which the reaction will take place. Things like temperature and pressure can affect how quickly or slowly a reaction happens as well as what products are formed. The solvent (the liquid in which a reaction takes place) can also affect these things. Additionally, some reactions require a catalyst in order to happen at all while others produce toxic byproducts that must be removed before consumption.

With all this information in hand, you should be able to draw a reasonable prediction of the organic product(s) of the given reaction.
