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
Introduction to Organic Synthesis
A video about organic synthesis, and how it is used in everyday life and industry processes.
Factors that Need to Be Considered When Designing a Chemical Synthesis Process

A video that evaluates how the reaction conditions of a reaction need to be considered.
Yield and Purity
A video that evaluates how the yield and purity of reactants need to be considered.
A video that evaluates how the industrial uses of a reaction need to be considered.
Environmental, Social and Economic Issues
A video that evaluates how the environmental, social, and economic issues need to be considered when designing a chemical synthesis process.
