For example, when we analyze the conversion of some chemical compound, certain characteristic areas tend to decrease (ok).

However, why can a peak (i.e., one peak) generate smaller peaks (i.e., more than one peak) in this case of conversion of some chemical compound (even if the total area decreases, indicating a reaction)?
