Question:

What could be the main reasons why actual yield is always less than theoretical yield?

Eny P.
Answer:

Some reactions are reversible and do not proceed 100% to the product side. The difficulty of obtaining products from the aqueous medium or other medium can also lowers the yield. Lastly, most reaction are complex and their reaction among other reactant or among themselves can be uncontrollable and would result in lower amount of your expected product.
