Question

Write the products formed when CH3CHO reacts with the following reagents: CH3CHO in the presence of dilute NaOH

Solution 1

Two molecules of ethanal condense in presence of a dilute NaOH to form 3 hydroxybutanal.

Solution 2

Reaction of acetaldehyde with acetaldehyde in the presence of dilute NaOH, this is the kind of Aldol reaction by which obtained 3-hydroxybutanal as product. Further proceed reaction when using heat in the reaction, its gives aldol condensation product which is But-2-enal

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
