If an compound is not isolated??
« on: May 20, 2021, 04:10:30 PM »

What does it mean for a compound to not be isolated but other compounds can when a reaction occurs?

You should probably clarify whether you mean "cannot be isolated" or something that could be isolated, but is not isolated for practical reasons. Regarding things that cannot be isolated, you might read about reactive intermediates: https://courses.lumenlearning.com/suny-potsdam-organicchemistry/chapter/5-6-reactive-intermediates/ . Or various google search for "reactive intermediate".
I have a Master's in organic chemistry and I am exposed to a LOT of different introductory organic chem classes in the course of my work, ranging from very basic to Harvard. I am here to refine my knowledge and consult with other organic chemistry nerds.
