- n. A colorless liquid, C4H8O2, obtained by condensation of two molecules of acetaldehyde: CH3CHO + CH3CHO = H3CH(OH)CH2CO; also, any of various derivatives of this. The same reaction has been applied, under the name of aldol condensation, to the production of many compounds.
from The Century Dictionary and Cyclopedia
- n. A compound, CH3CHOHCH2CHO, formed by the condensation of acetaldehyde by means of zinc chlorid. The official name is butanalol-3.

With all this focus on polyketide/macrolide synthesis, I thought Iâ€™d highlight an interesting review in this weekâ€™s Angewandte; a genuine masterclass in the aldol reaction.
In fact, our studies show that serine meets the first two criteria, and recent work24 has demonstrated that serine catalyses certain asymmetric aldol reactions with high enantioselectivity; it has also been highlighted as one of a small number of amino acids likely to have played an important role in prebiotic chemistry25, 26.
Last night I was even at the stage of sitting in the exam hall waiting to be told to open the test paper, when I realised that I could recall not one of the countless details of reagents, methods and strategies involved in the Grignard reaction in particular (yes, alkylmagnesium, I know that much) or the aldol reaction, Claesen rerrangement, Friedel-Crafts acylation and all the rest.
The aldol reaction is a key process in living organisms associated with the processing and synthesis of carbohydrates.
In a previous paper, published in the journal Science on March 7, the chemists reported another successful chemical reaction that uses designer enzymes to catalyze a retro-aldol reaction, which involves breaking a carbon-carbon bond.

Ketones can be used in aldol condensation reactions, although they are less reactive than aldehydes in this regard.
The implementation of the aldol reaction in the active site of an enzyme has been an important challenge.
