A
trimethyl acetaldehyde
loader
B
acetaldehyde
loader
C
benzaldehyde
loader
D
formaldehyde
loader

Solution

The correct option is B acetaldehyde
Cannizzaro reaction is given by aldehydes that do not have a $$\alpha $$ hydrogen atom. Acetaldehyde ($$CH_{3}CHO$$) has 3 $$\alpha $$ hydrogen atoms and thus doesnot undergo Cannizarro reaction.
