In the field of organic chemistry aldehydes are part of the family of substances containing a carbonyl group. The most well known of this group are as follows : formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, glutaraldehyde, etc.

Aldehydes are used in many industries such as in agriculture, in textiles and in chemistry. They are also degradation products obtained by heating certain chemicals or by oxidizing certain primary alcohols.
