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 >>

    Why is it that liver goes through all the trouble of making ketone bodies from acetyl coa when the ketone bodies are converted back to acetyl coa in the other tissues?

    Ketones are made when glucose stores are low, then, like you said, ketone bodies can be used by some non liver tissues to make acetyl coA and thus go on to make some atp. However, if glucose stores are low then the liver will turn to beta oxidation to make energy. Fatty acids go through beta oxidation and one of the products is acetyl coA. In order to go through beta oxidation, there needs to be coA avaliable. If the liver made acetyl coA and kept shipping it out the supply of coA would deplete, and the whole point to produce energy without glucose would be harmed due to a lack of coA for beta oxidation

    But by converting acetyl coa that was provided by fatty acid to ketone bodies and shipping them out to other tissues, aren't you depleting coa?
    Am I missing something?
