The following problems review many aspects of aldehyde and ketone chemistry. The first three questions concerns their nomenclature. The fourth also requires knowledge of nomenclature, together with simple chemical properties.. The fifth question asks you to match descriptions with corresponding structures. The sixth reviews oxidation-reduction terminology. The seventh examines three common reactions as applied to eight carbonyl compounds. You should only be concerned with the aldehyde and ketone reactants. The eighth question asks you to select those reactions, among a large group, that would yield aldehyde or ketone products. The next question focuses on possible reactions of a simple aldehyde. The tenth illustrates three ways questions about chemical reactions may be formulated. The eleventh and twelveth questions require you to draw the structural formulas for the products of many aldehyde and ketone reactions. Next, two questions about the mechanism of acetal and enamine formation are given. Finally, the last question concerns the aldol condensation.
