From what aldehyde or ketone is the given molecule prepared by an aldol reaction?
Formation of Enones:
Aldol condensation is an organic reaction that can generate enones. Carbonyl compounds (Aldehydes and ketones) that contain at least one alpha-hydrogen participate in this reaction. The reagent for the reactions is a dilute alkali and a catalyst.
Answer and Explanation: 1
The retrosynthetic pathway can be used to detect the aldehyde or ketone needed to produce the given compound.
Hence, we can synthesize the...
