Propionaldehyde is the organic compound with the formula CH3CH2CHO. It is the only 3-carbon aldehyde and is a structural isomer of acetone. It is a colourless liquid with a slightly irritating, fruity odour.
Additional recommended knowledge
Condensation of propionaldehyde with tert-butylamine gives CH3CH2CH=N-t-Bu, a useful three-carbon building block in organic synthesis. Deprotonation of this imine with LDA produces CH3CHLi2CH=N-t-Bu, which in turn condenses with aldehydes.
