Organic chemistry mechanism is described as a detailed and a step-wise description of the pathway by which organic chemistry reactants are converted to products. Some of the important aspects of reaction mechanism are: (1) Proper orientation of the reactants. (2) Sequence in which bonds are broken and form, 3) Direction of electron shift. (4) Nature of unstable intermediate.

     It is important for you to understand why you need to learn this as a chemistry student to ensure meaningful learning of chemistry. Below are some reasons why you study mechanism:

     "Mechanisms is a factual detail framework to understand the organic chemistry. For example, by understanding how and why the reagents added to the carbon centre, makes the learning of the reactions of carbonyl compounds more memorable".
