( b ) The starting material, known as citral, is converted to the two products by a reversal of an aldol condensation. The f rst step is conjugate addition of hydroxide. The product of this conjugate addition is a b -hydroxy ketone. It undergoes base-catalyzed cleavage to the observed products. ( c ) The product is formed by an intramolecular aldol condensation. ( d ) In this problem stereochemical isomerization involving a proton attached to the a -carbon atom of a ketone takes place. Enolization of the ketone yields an intermediate in which the
