If we have 1,3-diphenylprop-2-en-1-one, will it give positive Tollens test? I think aldol reactions are reversible under basic conditions. Here there are mildly basic conditions, so will we get back the reactants of the aldol reation?
This question was part of JEE ADVANCED 2016 where they asked which will give Tollens reagent test. I feel it has mildly basic conditions for KOH, hence it should perform reverse aldol and thus this should be the Answer. But the official answer key says no.
Please help me out because I can't understand how to distinguish between the two types.
