Expert Answer:

Acetaldehyde prepared from
(1) CH3COCl(acetyl chloride)
 
Rosenmund Reduction:
 In this reaction, acyl chloride on hydrogenation in the presence of palladium catalyst and barium sulphate gives aldehydes
 

(2) (CH3COO)2Ca (calcium acetate):
Dry distillation of calcium acetate yields acetaldehyde:
