Aldol Condensation Abstract: In this reaction we obtained the correct melting point of 106 ° C, which is 2 degrees off what is said in the MSDS. The product that we obtained in our percent yield is 69% and we obtained .559 g of crystal back. Introduction: A cyclohexane will be synthesized by the crossed aldol condensation of a ketone with benzaldehyde. This reaction occurs because of the stirring of the reactants and catalyst. Reaction: Materials Used: Chemical Amount Formula Weight Density Hazards Benzaldehyde 1.4 ml 106.13 g/mol 1.0415 g/ml Combustible, very hazrdous Cyclohexane 1.1 ml 98.15g/mol 0.9478 g/ml Flammable, irritant Ethyl alcohol 25 ml Flammable, irritant Sodium 30 ml Non-flammable,
