Organic synthesis is a branch of chemical synthesis and is concerned with the intentional construction of organic compounds.Organic molecules are often more complex than inorganic compounds, and their synthesis has developed into one of the most important branches of organic chemistry. The techniques of organic synthesis have developed and advanced, with multi-step synthesis using retrosynthesis being revolutionary for the field of chemical research. The retrosynthetic framework for synthesis of organic molecules is designed to be efficient, economical and environmentally-friendly and is therefore an invaluable asset which has transformed approaches to organic chemical synthesis. Retrosynthesis, by its molecule deconstruction approach, helps in understanding the complex nature of the natural products and provides multiple possibilities of synthetic routes, from which the most cost-effective and environmentally friendly path can be selected.
