    Some solved questions are given below:

    Question 1:

    Amongst the following compounds, the one that will not respond to Cannizzaro reaction upon treatment with alkali is

    (A)  Cl3CCHO

    (B) Me3CCHO

    (C) C6H5CHO

    (D) HCHO

    Solution 1:

    Cl3CCHO formation is the 2nd last step in the haloform reaction mechanism. Hence on treatment with caustic alkali, Cl3CCHO is hydrolysed and does not disproportionate.

    Hence, the correct option is (A).

    Question 2:

    WBJEE Chemistry Question 2

    Solution 2:

    This is an intramolecular Cannizzaro’s reaction.

    WBJEE Chemistry Solution 2

    Hence, the correct option is (A).

    Question 3:

    Which of the following reactions will not result in the formation of carbon–carbon bonds?

    (a) Cannizaro reaction

    (b) Wurtz reaction

    (c) Reimer-Tiemann reaction

    (d) Friedel-Crafts acylation

    Solution 3:

    Wurtz reaction, Reimer-Tiemann reaction, Friedel-Crafts acylation result in the formation of C-C bond while Cannizaro reaction do not form Carbon-Carbon bond.

    Hence, the correct option is (a).

    Question 4:

    The major products obtained during ozonolysis of 2, 3 – dimethyl-1-butene and subsequent reductions with Zn and H2O are

    (a) Methanoic acid and 2-methyl-2-butanone

    (b) Methanal and 3-methyl-2-butanone

    (c) Methanol and 2,2-dimethyl-3-butanone

    (d) Methanoic acid and 2-methyl-3-butanone

    Solution 4:

    WBJEE Chemistry Solution 4

    Conclusion:

    These notes contain the crux of the chapter Aldehydes, Ketones and Carboxylic Acid. With the help of these notes aspirants can easily understand the mechanisms of all important name reactions related to this chapter. It will also help in saving precious time of engineering aspirants.
