Synthetic Organic Chemistry is a way to build organic compounds from smaller entities. It is an applied science which borders engineering, the "design, analysis, and construction of works for practical purposes". Organic synthesis of a novel compound requires a synthetic analysis and planning. The protection-deprotection method is used in a synthetic plan where each reaction in the synthetic scheme must affect only the required functional group leaving the others, which therefore must be protected. The synthesis proceeds by utilizing the reactivity of the functional groups in the molecule. The molecules are classified on the basis of their functional groups which have a resolute influence on the properties of the organic compounds.
