The earliest predictions about the structure of benzene could not completely explain some of its properties. Later it was found that benzene has a cyclic structure which is commonly represented as follows:
These two structures are resonance structures of benzene. Benzene is also commonly represented as shown below:
A series of reactions were conducted using benzene and other aromatic compounds.
In Reaction 1, benzene was reacted with n-propyl chloride in the presence of AlCl3.
Nitrobenzene was reacted with nitric acid and sulfuric acid. The reaction occurred as follows:
All the following are false about Reaction 2, except that:
|A||Compound A is a meta product|
|B||The major product is a 1,2 substituted product|
|C||The major product is a para substituted product|
|D||Compound C is a 1,3 substituted product|
