Carbonyl compounds do not undergo nucleophillc substitution reactions.why?


Nucleaphilic substitution reactions, at the minimum H-(hydride) ion from aldehydes and -CH3 from ketones needs to be withdrawn. These are strong nucleophiles, and can not be displaced by other nucleophiles, therefore, carbonyl compounds can not undergo nucleophilic substitution reactions.
