Ch # 12 Aldehydes and Ketones Short Question
Organic compounds containing the carbonyl functional group, (>C = O) are called carbonyl compounds. In a carbonyl group, a carbon atom is bonded to oxygen with a double bond. In aldehydes, the carbonyl group is bonded to at least one hydrogen atom, and so it occurs at the end of a chain. In ketones, the carbonyl group is bonded to two carbon atoms, and so it occurs within a chain…………
