CHAPTER 13 - ALDEHYDES AND KETONES - The classes of molecules that have been covered so far are the alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, aromatic hydrocarbons, alcohols, ether, thiols, and phenols. Now let's look at the functional groups for the aldehydes and ketones . - Notice that both functional groups contain a carbon atom that has a double bond to an oxygen atom. Recall that this group (shown in red below) is called a

Unformatted text preview: carbonyl- The only difference between the two functional groups is that the aldehyde group has a hydrogen atom bonded to the carbonyl group where as the ketone group has two carbon atoms bonded to the carbonyl group .- The other group attached to the carbon atom in the aldehyde functional groupcan be a hydrogen atom or a carbon atom. Aldehydes and ketones are very common substances-...
