Giving examples give the mechanisms of Aldol condensation between two molecules of aldehydes and two molecules of ketones. Also show how dehydration reaction leads to the final product of alpha-beta unsaturated ketone/aldehyde.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com December 20, 2018, 5:20 am ad1c9bdddf
Aldol condensation is a condensation reaction between two molecules of an aldehyde or a ketone in the presence of a base (usually) to yield a beta-hydroxy ketone.
