Aldehydes (and ketones) can be polymerized using a base-catalyst. Since in this reaction monomers are bonded to each other (under hydrogen relocation), this type of reaction is called polyaddition. A reaction of acetaldehyde by base catalysis is produced. The aldol reaction conducted here is technically not used.
