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

\(n=1000\)

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
