In many books, it is mentioned that aldehydes are easily oxidized even by mild oxidizing agents. However, I have never seen bromine water explicitly mentioned. But in the carbohydrates chapter, it is mentioned that glucose etc. are oxidized by bromine water.
So is it that only carbohydrates are oxidized by bromine water or all aldehydes?
Also, do they react with bromine water under the conditions of the bromine water test for unsaturation? Or do they react only under vigorous conditions?
