few important thing regarding the adol reaction


It is a  Nucleophilic addition Reaction


Reagents : commonly a base such as NaOH or KOH is added to the aldehyde.


The reaction involves an enolate reacting with another molecule of the aldehyde.


Remember enolates are good nucleophiles and carbonyl C are electrophiles.


The products of these reactions are b-hydroxyaldehydes or aldehyde-alcohols = aldols.


The simplest aldol reaction is the condensation of ethanal. This is shown below in 2 different representations (the line diagrams are less cluttered)


Mechanism
