Let’s understand what types of question are asked in exams:

• What type of Aldehyde used in Cannizzaro Reaction?

[Hint: Aldehyde without α-Hydrogen atom]

• What type of alkali must be used in Cannizzaro Reaction?

[Hint: Concentrated Alkali]

• Give an example of redox reaction from Organic Chemistry?

[Hint: Cannizzaro Reaction

Molecule (of the Aldehyde) Reduced to Alcohol
