@Supreeta_Sen ur notes are amazing
Look at option A, @Viraam_Rao
They wanted the product to be mesitylene. And although we can do aldol with 2 molecules, but there is a possibility of forming mesitylene too.
Paper 1, 2018 adv
@Yash_Srivastava2 thanks man
Ohh yeah. So here we need to check possibility so its fine.
BTW what's the answer to the question?
I think it’s all of them
3 kaha hoga
Oh nahi hoga kya? Maine check nahi kiya
and 1 mai h2so4 reagent hai what will it do? i m sure about b,d
Acid catalysed aldol.
And you’re right, 3 forms benzene.
So it’s 1,2,4
Silly question but Wolf Kishner and Clemmensen Reduction works for even aldehydes? IDK why but I kind of was under the impression that its only for ketones.
yeah for aldehyde and ketone both
Yes bro, they do
Ok thanks guys.
Is there partial marking for multi correct ?
can u check ans i m not sure about 1
Bola na Abhi bro. Check post 312. It does acid catalysed aldol.
Checked answer, it’s a,b,d
@Viraam_Rao yes there is partial marking bro
Is this mesitylene reaction by aldol supposed to be a common reaction?
LOL cuz this is the first time I am seeing it. Thank god for your notes.
Actually, no, it’s not that common.
But you know, 2018 Advance chemistry was on the tougher side. Kaafi unpredictable. It’s not surprising they asked this. And well even if you didn’t mark a, you’d have gotten marks for b and d
6 mai se 2 hi milte which is not good
Minus 2 se better hai ki nahi bro
Hopefully such reactions are covered in some mock tests. I remember this reaction from MyPat actually.
HCHO + NH3 giving urotropine.
Har ek test mein ise hi puch puch kar ab yeh by heart hi ho gaya.
