Carbonyl groups define two related families of organic compounds: the aldehydes and the ketones. The carbonyl group is ubiquitous in biological compounds. It is found in carbohydrates, fats, proteins, nucleic acids, hormones, and vitamins—organic compounds critical to living systems. In a ketone , two carbon groups are attached to the carbonyl carbon atom.

Aldehydes and ketones are also used as build- ing blocks in the syntheses of commercially important compounds, including pharmaceuticals and polymers.
Uses of Aldehydes and Ketones
Aldehydes and ketones contain the carbonyl group. Aldehydes are considered the most important functional group. They are often called the formyl or methanoyl group. Aldehydes derive their name from the dehyd ration of al cohols. Aldehydes contain the carbonyl group bonded to at least one hydrogen atom.
Aldehydes and ketones undergo a variety of reactions that lead to many different products. Reactions of carbonyl groups. Due to differences in electronegativities, the carbonyl group is polarized. The carbon atom has a partial positive charge, and the oxygen atom has a partially negative charge. Aldehydes are usually more reactive toward nucleophilic substitutions than ketones because of both steric and electronic effects.
The boiling point of aldehydes and ketones is higher than that of non-polar compounds hydrocarbons but lower than those of corresponding alcohols and carboxylic acids as aldehydes and ketones do not form H-bonds with themselves. The lower members up to 4 carbons of aldehydes and ketones are soluble in water due to H-bonding. The higher members do not dissolve in water because the hydrocarbon part is larger and resists the formation of hydrogen bonds with water molecules. Both aldehydes and ketones contain carbonyl group, therefore they undergo same reactions like nucleophilic addition reactions, oxidation, reduction, halogenation etc. Aromatic aldehydes and ketones exhibit electron donating resonance which increases the electron density on the carbonyl carbon.
It is common to several classes of organic compounds, as part of many larger functional groups. A compound containing a carbonyl group is often referred to as a carbonyl compound. The term carbonyl can also refer to carbon monoxide as a ligand in an inorganic or organometallic complex a metal carbonyl , e. The remainder of this article concerns itself with the organic chemistry definition of carbonyl, where carbon and oxygen share a double bond. Other organic carbonyls are urea and the carbamates , the derivatives of acyl chlorides chloroformates and phosgene , carbonate esters , thioesters , lactones , lactams , hydroxamates , and isocyanates. Examples of inorganic carbonyl compounds are carbon dioxide and carbonyl sulfide.
