Identifying Aldehyde

Postby Silvino Jimenez 1A » Fri Mar 16, 2018 5:36 pm

when identifying aldehyde

do you include both carbons or just the carbon bonded to the OH?

I think when identifying an aldehyde you want to look for a carbon bonded to one or two hydrogens and an oxygen. Carbon being bonded to a hydroxyl group (OH) would indicate that the molecule is an alcohol.
