Description

In aldol condensation, an enolate ion reacts with another carbonyl compound to form a conjugated enone. The process occurs in two parts: an aldol reaction, which forms an aldol product, and a dehydration reaction, which removes water to form the final product.

Organic chemistry

Sal and Jay cover topics covered in college organic chemistry course. Basic understanding of basic high school or college chemistry assumed (although there is some review).

Aldol condensations

In this tutorial, Sal and Jay show you the mechanism of the aldol condensation and how to predict the products of aldol reactions.

Topic: Science

Learn about all the sciences, from physics, chemistry and biology, to cosmology an…
