Factors that Need to be Considered when Designing a Chemical Synthesis Process

This is part of the HSC Chemistry course under the topic of Chemical Synthesis and Design

In this post, we evaluate the factors that need to be considered when designing a chemical synthesis process, including but not limited to:

  • Availability of reagents
  • Reaction conditions
  • Yield and purity
  • Industrial uses (eg pharmaceutical, cosmetics, cleaning products, fuels)
  • Environmental, social and economic issues
