Geraniol by oxidation goes into the aldehyde, citral, which occurs in lemons, oranges and verbena flowers.
Benzoic acid, like the aldehyde, is a natural product which has long been known.
It is not possible to obtain the aldehyde in a pure condition, since it readily polymerizes.
There is no reduction unless an aldehyde is added or unless some boiled extract of a tissue such as liver is added.
But this interpretation ignores a number of other probable sources of the aldehyde.
There is no reduction if the milk, methylene blue, and aldehyde are agitated with air.
The value of the oil depends upon its aldehyde content, the chief constituent being cinnamic aldehyde.
By the addition of diluted sulphuric acid, the aldehyde of cinnamic acid is afterwards procured pure.
aldehyde is formed to a considerable extent during the reaction.
aldehyde gives a carmine red unaltered by ammonium sulphate.
first oxidation product of alcohol, 1833, discovered in 1774 by German-born Swedish chemist Carl Wilhelm Scheele (1742-1786), the name said to have been coined by German chemist Justus von Liebig (1803-1873) from abbreviation of Modern Latin alcohol dehydrogenatum "dehydrogenated alcohol."
aldehyde al·de·hyde (āl'də-hīd')
Any of a class of reactive organic chemical compounds obtained by oxidation of primary alcohols, characterized by the common group CHO, and used in the manufacture of resins, dyes, and organic acids.
