Question

Describe Cross aldol condensation

Solution

Cross-aldol condensation:

When aldol condensation is carried out between two different aldehydes, or two different ketones, or an aldehyde and a ketone, then the reaction is called a cross-aldol condensation. If both the reactants contain α-hydrogens, four compounds are obtained as products.

For example, ethanal and propanal react to give four products.
