Aldehydes An aldehyde is an organic compound containing a terminal carbonyl group. This functional group consists of a carbon atom bonded to a hydrogen atom and double-bonded to an oxygen atom having the chemical formula (O=CH-) Aldehydes can be synthesized by reacting a primary alcohol with an oxidizing agent. Suitable Agents - PCC, Potassium Dichromate, Ozone, ect. Possible Synthesis:

Aldehydes can participate in a number of different reactions The aldehyde group can be reduced to the group -CH2OH, changing the aldehyde into a primary alcohol. The aldehyde group can be oxidized to the group -COOH, yielding a carboxylic acid. Aldehydes can go through nucleophilic addition. In nucleophilic addition reactions a nucleophile can add to the carbon atom in the carbonyl group, yielding an additional compound in which this carbon atom has tetrahedral molecular geometry.
