Cannizzaro reaction: Aldehydes having no α-hydrogen atoms undergo self oxidationand reduction (disproportionation) reactions on treatment with a concentrated alkali. Insuch reactions, one molecule of aldehyde gets oxidised to form an acid and the othermolecule of aldehyde gets reduced to form an alcohol.For example, two molecules of formaldehyde, in the presence of concentrated NaOH,produce methanol and sodium formate.
