Question

# Which of the following compounds would undergo Cannizzaro reaction?A) $$HCHO$$B) $$C_{6}H_{5}CHO$$C) $$Cl_{3}C-CHO$$D) $$(CH_{3})_{3}C-CHO$$

A
A and B only
B
B and C only
C
C and D only
D
A,B, and D

Solution

## The correct option is D $$A,\: B,$$ and $$D$$Carbonyl compounds having no $$\alpha-$$hydrogen will undergo Cannizzaro reaction. Out of the above-given options, A, B and D none of them have alpha hydrogen. So, all can undergo Cannizzaro reaction.Option C compound is known as chloral because in presence of base chloral gives chloroform, which is not Cannizzaro product.$$CCl_3CHO +OH^- \rightarrow CHCl_3$$Chemistry
