    Solution:

    Cannizzaro’s reaction is not shown by an aldehyde containing an α-hydrogen atom.

    When two molecules of a non-enolizable aldehyde are disproportionated by a base, a chemical reaction known as the Cannizzaro reaction—named after Stanislao Cannizzaro—occurs that produces a primary alcohol and a carboxylic acid.
