What is Chemical Synthesis?
This post goes through the introduction to chemical synthesis for QCE Chemistry.
4.2.1 – Chemical synthesis
- Appreciate that chemical synthesis involves the selection of particular reagents to form a product with specific properties
- Understand that reagents and reaction conditions are chosen to optimise the yield and rate for chemical synthesis processes, including the production of ammonia (Haber process), sulfuric acid (contact process) and biodiesel (base-catalysed and lipase-catalysed methods)
This video goes through considerations and inputs in a chemical synthesis.
