QUESTION

# Where does aldehyde functional group occur in organic compounds?

At the END of a hydrocarbyl chain........

An "aldehyde" contains the R-C(=O)H and thus is has to be at a chain terminus. On the other hand, a carbonyl group that is flanked by 2 alkyl groups (or non-hydrogen) groups is a "ketone". "Aldehydes" tend to be much more reactive than ketones in that steric access to the carbonyl centre is greatly improved.
