When Acetaldehyde is treated with excess formaldehyde in presence of ( mathrm{Ca}(mathrm{OH}), ) crossed aldol condensation watimue( 3 times) until trihydroxy methyl acetaldehyde ( [(mathrm{HOCH},), mathrm{C} mathrm{CHO}] ) is formed. The latter having no ( alpha- ) hydrogen undergoes crossed cannizzaros' reaction to form penta erithritol.
