ALDOL REACTION occurs between two aldehyde or ketone molecules with a catalytic base reaction can occur between two components that have alpha hydrogens reversible condensation reaction two highlights: enolate formation and nucleophilic attack at a carbonyl carbon Aldol products are: alpha-ß-unsaturated aldehydes/ketones and ß-hydroxy aldehydes/ ketones

Mechanism of the Aldol Reaction HO : H C H H C O H Base removes an acidic alpha hydrogen from one aldehyde molecule, yielding a resonance- stabilized eno- late ion.

Dehydration of Aldol Products: Synthesis of Enones ß-hydroxy aldehydes and ß-hydroxy ketones formed in aldol reactions can be easily dehydrated to yield conjugated enones Dehydration is catalyzed by both acid and base Reaction conditions for dehydration are only slightly more severe than for condensation Conjugated enones are more stable than nonconjugated enones
