Cho 8 Aldehydes and ketones

charges in carbonyl carbon is partially positive, oxygen is partially negative
aldehydes are ---- functional groups and ketones are ----- aldehydes are terminal, ketones are midchain
how can aldehydes be synthesized from primary alcohols with PCC
what can aldehydes be oxidized or reduced too oxidized to carboxylic acids, reduced too secondary alcohols
what can ketones be oxidized or reduced too cannot be oxidized further, can be reduced to secondary alcohols
what is significant about the enol form it can act as a nucleophile, but it is not prevalent in solution
where will nucleophiles typically add to the carbonyl carbon to the electropositive carbonyl carbon
Wittig reaction swaps out C=O for C=C
Wolf-Kishner and Clemmensen The Wold-Kischner reduction and Clemmensen reduction reduce ketones or aldehydes to alcohols
