(a) CCI base 3CHO + NaOH ? CCI base 3CH base 2 OH + CCI base 3 COONa 2, 2, 2 – trichloro – ethanol

In cannizzaro’s reaction the compounds which do not contain ?-hydrogen atoms undergo oxidation and reduction simultaneously i.e undergo disproportion action and form one molecule of sodium salt of carboxylic acid as oxidation product and one molecule of alcohol as reduction product.
