Write the chemical reaction involved in Wolff-Kishner reduction.
Write the equations involved in the following reactions
The Wolff Kishner reduction reaction is a method in which a carbonyl compound (aldehyde or ketone) is reduced to a hydrocarbon. In this method, the carbonyl compound is heated with a mixture of hydrazine and strong base such as sodium or potassium hydroxide at a temperature of 453 K - 473 K in ethylene glycol solvent.
