This lesson gives an insight into Aldol Condensation within the same molecule and questions for the same. It's moderately important from exam point of view and a must watch!

Hi Aksh! Strained rings (3,4,8,9 membered) can't usually be formed, but reactions which form 5-6 membered rings are common for intramolecular Aldol. Also the answer to your second question would be yes. Intramolecular Aldol can be thought of as self Aldol as the same carbonyl compound is acting as both the electrophile and nucleophile. hope this helps. happy learning :)
