Let's start with cross aldol

Chemistry Level 3

A bit of info

A cross aldol reaction is a aldol reaction between 2 different aldehydes (or even ketones).

The situation you are stuck with

You have \(n\) aldehydes (all of them \(DISTINCT\) ) with you on your lab desk, and a large container having \(dil.\) \(NaOH\) in front of you. Without your knowledge you pour all the \(n\) aldehydes into the large container with the alkali.

Lets make it hypothetical


Now you have to find the no. of all possible \(CROSS\) aldol condensation products that takes place between these aldehydes.

Note: DO NOT consider stereoisomers

all substituents have atleast one alpha-hydrogen.

Feel this is easier , then try this problem
