Why does the fact that an aldehyde has a hydrogen atom attached to the carbonyl group mean it is easily oxidised in comparison to ketones?
Search through FunMans videos for the one about aldehyde and ketone reactivity. it is a nice 5 minute video that will help you!
Hey- which video are you trying to show as the link just brings me to a YouTube channel and I can't seem to find a video called 'electrons, charges and steric factors' on that channel
Thanks, the 'protected by two bulk groups' bit makes sense but I'm more confused about the whole idea of hydrogen atoms being easier to remove in aldehydes which my textbook refers to
