Cannizaro’s reaction is not given by _____________.
C. H CHO
The Cannizzaro reaction is a redox reaction in which two molecules of an aldehyde are reacted to produce primary alcohol and a carboxylic acid under the presence of a hydroxide base. There should be no alpha hydrogen (hydrogen attached to alpha carbon) as there will be no enolization and aldol condensation.
Option (iv) will not give Cannizaro reaction as it contains alpha hydrogen.
Option (i), (ii) and (iii) will give Cannizzaro reaction as they do not have alpha hydrogen.
Step 1 Mechanism;
Step 2 Mechanism;
Step 3 Mechanism;

An aromatic compound ‘A’ (Molecular formula C8H8O) gives positive 2, 4-DNP test. It gives a yellow precipitate of compound ‘B’ on treatment with iodine and sodium hydroxide solution. Compound ‘A’ does not give Tollen’s or Fehling’s test. On drastic oxidation with potassium permanganate it forms a carboxylic acid ‘C’ (Molecular formula C7H6O2), which is also formed along with the yellow compound in the above reaction. Identify A, B and C and write all the reactions involved.Chemistry - Exemplar
