Addition of heat in aldol condensations

  1. 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    If you reacted acetophenone with itself, would you need to heat the reaction mixture for it to form the aldol condensation product? Why or why not?

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I'm guessing yes since it is a condensation reaction and water is a product, but I'm not entirely sure.
