🤓 Based on our data, we think this question is relevant for Professor Hollinsed's class at HU.

Solution: Which is not true of the aldol reaction? A) It accomplishes the formation of a new carbon-carbon bond. B) The key step in the mechanism is attack of the α-carbon atom of an enolate ion on a carbonyl carbon atom. C) Dehydration of the aldol product is often observed (an aldol condensation). D) The enolate is favored at equilibrium.
