    Constitutional isomers of C4H8O | Aldehyde & Ketone – Dr K

    We’re gonna draw out all possible aldehyde and ketone isomers for C4H8O in this video. How many isomers do you think we will get? Well, stay tuned until the end of this video to find out. Let’s begin. Quick recap, aldehyde has a carbonyl functional group which is C double bond O connected to a hydrogen. Note that this CHO group is always at the first carbon for aldehyde. Whereas, ketone, it has the same carbonyl group but instead of hydrogen next to it, it’s sandwiched between two carbons. Let’s start with aldehyde. Since we have four carbons, let’s start by placing all of them in a straight line and…
