Course Description

Aldehydes, Ketones and Carboxylic Acids constitute an important class of organic compounds. These compounds are characterized by carbonyl functional group, which has carbon doubly bonded to oxygen atom and are obtained by varying the substituents attached to carbonyl group. These compounds find several applications in our day-to-day lives including food products, pharmaceuticals, flavour and fragrance additive and also play vital roles in various biochemical processes. In this chapter, we will learn structure and reactivity of carbonyl and carboxyl functional groups, methods of preparation, chemical reactions and uses of aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic acids and their derivatives.

Simply Easy Learning

Tutorials Point originated from the idea that there exists a class of readers who respond better to online content and prefer to learn new skills at their own pace from the comforts of their drawing rooms.

The journey commenced with a single tutorial on HTML in 2006 and elated by the response it generated, we worked our way to adding fresh tutorials to our repository which now proudly flaunts a wealth of tutorials and allied articles on topics ranging from programming languages to web designing to academics and much more.

40 million readers read 100 million pages every month

Our Text Library Content and resources are freely available and we prefer to keep it that way to encourage our readers acquire as many skills as they would like to. We don't force our readers to sign up with us or submit their details either to use our Free Text Tutorials Library. No preconditions and no impediments, Just Simply Easy Learning!
