Answer: 

Enolizable aldehydes and enolizable ketones, in the presence of an acid or base catalyst in aqueous medium at high temperature, undergo a reaction, giving an a, v-unsaturated aldehyde or an a, v-unsaturated ketone, respectively, as the product.  This reaction is known as aldol condensation.  ..........REF:http://science.uvu.edu/ochem/index.php/alphabetical/a-b/aldol-condensation/
