Reactions in Carbon Chemistry
There is a number of characteristic differences between organic and inorganic reactions:
in general, organic reactions are slower.
- They are slow. The reactivity of many oganic substances is less than the reactivity of many inorganic substances.
- Many times they do not occur in watery environment.
- Often they produce not only the desired end product, but also side products (polluting the main product)
connected to those last two remarks, we may say that organic reaction mostly have no high rendement, yield.
Often you must purify the final product, immediately after the organic reaction and the production of the final product. For that they can apply the fractional distillation.
The most important prime substances for the chemical industry of organic products are Coal, Oil and Natural Gas.
