ALDOL CONDENSATIONS Aldol condensations are nucleophilic additions of an enolate ion, which are strong nucleophiles, to another C=O group under basic conditions. Protonation gives the aldol product. Once formed, the aldol product undergoes dehydration in base. Abstraction of an a proton gives an enolate that can expel an –OH ion to give a conjugated product. Dehydration is usually exothermic because it leads to a very stable conjugated product. C C H O C H H CH 3 α β
