In the aromatic chemistry section of my textbook- the one by Dave Gent and Rob Richie- it has loads of structures for random compounds, for example decanal and cinnamaldehyde, and their uses. Is it possible that this will come up in the exam, or is it just extra knowledge that isn't much use, but may help understanding? Thanks :-)

Sorry you've not had any responses about this. Are you sure you’ve posted in the right place? Posting in the specific Study Help forum should help get responses.

I'm going to quote in Puddles the Monkey now so she can move your thread to the right place if it's needed. :yy:

You don't need to know them. From what I remember, they're just there to demonstrate that aldehydes and ketones occur widely in nature and many natural compounds contain those functional groups.
