(b) TIPS/Formulae :

The compound containing ?-H atom does not undergo Cannizzaro’s reaction.

Acetaldehyde does not undergo Cannizzaro reaction since it has ?-H atoms while formaldehyde, trimethylacetaldehyde and benzaldehyde undergo Cannizzaro reaction since they do not contain ?-hydrogen atoms.

The cannizaro reaction is only possible for aldehydes which cannot undergo enolisation .But here aldehydes can undergo enolisation so candidate reaction is not possible for aldehydes...Ram

Cannizzaro reaction is given by ones which do not have alpha hydrogen. Here only acetaldehyde has alpha hydrogen. Hence only acetaldehyde will not give cannizzaro reaction.

Dear student,

Hope it helps.
