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:

Reactions with Aldehydes 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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
