2. Nature

The chemical buildings of benzaldehyde are similar to fatty aldehydes, however, there are likewise distinctions. Benzaldehyde can not minimize Fehling's reagent; when minimizing benzaldehyde with the reagent utilized in lowering fatty aldehyde, along with the main item benzyl alcohol, some tetra-substituted vicinal glycol substances and also s-diphenyl glycol are additionally produced. In the presence of potassium cyanide, 2 particles of benzaldehyde produce benzoin by donating hydrogen atoms. Benzaldehyde can also undergo an electrophilic substitution response on the aromatic core, which primarily generates meta-substituted products. As an example, the main product during nitration is m-nitrobenzaldehyde. It is quickly oxidized in the air to produce white benzoic acid. It can react with amides to produce pharmaceutical intermediates.
