Aldehydes And Ketones Reactions

6 Reactions of aldehydes and ketones with water to produce hydrates Experimentt: Al dehyde and Ketone Reactions Aldehydes and ketones are an important class of compounds in organic chemistry. The importance of molecular structure in the reactivity of organic compounds is illustrated by the reactions that produce aldehydes and ketones. Carbonyl Condensation Reactions As a result of the large dipole of the carbonyl group: Nucleophilic carbonyl: aldehydes, ketones, esters, amides and Chapter 14 Aldehydes and Ketones • This makes low molecular weight aldehydes and ketones ALDEHYDE AND KETONE REACTIONS Oxidation and reduction of aldehydes and ketones • Aldehydes can be oxidized easily to carboxylic acids Reactions of aldehydes and ketones with alcohols This reaction is used as a simple test to distinguish aldehydes from ketones REACTIONS OF ALDEHYDES TASK Write balanced equations for the following reactions. In a similar reaction alcohols add reversibly to aldehydes and ketones to form hemiacetals (hemi, Greek, half). . 2 Nomenclature 20. Read more. The aldehyde serves as the dienophile . This two step reaction starts with the nucleophilic attack of the Phosphorus on the (usually pr Continue reading >>

    Is there a safe / ok level of ketones?

    Might be a stupid question, right now I feel so ill I can hardly string words together but my logic is running like this:
    Very little/no food means I'm burning fat reserves (the few I have) which means ketones, right?
    My last check rated a weight loss of around 1lb per day currently over the last week or so but I'm hoping this will slow once I can get back to my normal "eat everything in sight" diet. This is normal for me, even before D, it's putting the weight back on that takes the time.
    I've been checking the bg levels and they're normal thanks to cranking up the background Lantus to counter the one point (~20 for the American readers) rise.
    So my question is, just how much ketones in the urine is ok? I'm using the coloured (colored ) sticks which are a bit vague anyway but how high before DKA sets in?

    ketones are ok and as you say are a sign of not eating and burning fat. it's only when accompanied by high blood sugars that problems arise and DKA can occur. Keep monitoring and keep a careful eye on them.
    Do you know what is wrong with you, why you feel so ill and can't eat? If you've not been checked out I think it would be advisable. are you able to drink plenty of fluids?
    maybe you could get a blood ketone monitor as they give a current picture rather than the deyaled one that urine testing gives.
    hope you feel a bit better soon.

    Hi Lizard, your blood sugar doesn't necessarily have to be high for a dangerous amount of ketones to kick in...I was in advanced DKA with a blood sugar of 14.3 a few years ago and almost lost my life hours later. I can't remember what the ketones bottle says, but I know that once I am showing ++ ketones I need to start my sick day management plan...ie extra insulin more frequently. The ketones, once at a dangerous level will give you stomach pains, and probably make you vomit. DKA feels like you are just coming down with a virus in the early stages and you may not think anything of it. Keep doing what you're doing, and try to eat something if you can..even small amounts of food will help your insulin to do it's job more effectively. If at any time you feel worse or are unsure then go to hospital...it's better to be safe than sorry.
    I hope you feel better soon!
