Seperate aldehyde and ketone - advanced level organic chemistry
Both aldehyde and ketone contain
Active group of aldehyde is and ketone's active group is
Aldehyde can be oxidized furthermore due to exist of H-C bond. but ketone is not oxidized.
Due to different active groups, aldehyde and ketone indicate different reactions for same reagent. but sometimes they show same changes (like colour changes). Below table shows some experiments can be done to identify aldehyde and ketone
