## NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Chemistry chapter 12 Aldehydes, Ketones and Carboxylic Acids

This chapter is very important for class 12 students because this chapter carries 6 marks out of 70 in the CBSE Board exam. This chapters deals with aldehydes, ketones and carboxylic acids compounds, their IUPAC names, physical properties and chemical reactions. In this chapter, there are 20 questions in the exercise. The NCERT Solutions for Class 12 Chemistry chapter 12 Aldehydes, Ketones and Carboxylic Acids to help students in their preparation of CBSE board exams and competitive exams like JEE Mains, NEET, BITSAT, etc.

In the previous chapter, we have studies organic compounds containing carbon-oxygen single bond functional groups. In NCERT Class 12 Chemistry chapter 12 Aldehydes, Ketones and Carboxylic Acids, we will learn the organic compounds containing carbon-oxygen double bond (>C=O) called carbonyl group.  In the organic chemistry carbonyl group (>C=O) is one of the most important functional groups. After completing the class 12 chemistry unit 12 aldehydes, ketones and carboxylic acids students will be able to write the IUPAC names of ketones, aldehydes and carboxylic acid, able to write the their structures and describe important reactions of these three classes of compounds and their important methods of preparation and correlate their structures with their physical and chemical properties.

In aldehydes, the carbonyl functional group(>C=O) is bonded to a carbon and hydrogen atom, while in the ketones, the carbonyl group is bounded to two carbon atoms. In the carboxylic acid, carbon of carbonyl group(>C=O) is bounded to hydrogen or carbon and oxygen of hydroxyl moiety(-OH), while in amides carbon is attached to hydrogen or carbon and nitrogen of moiety$\dpi{100} -NH_{2}$and in acyl halides, carbon is attached to hydrogen or carbon and to halogens. Following are the basic structures of aldehydes, ketones, carboxylic Acids, acyl halide and amide.
