Aromatic Benzene PowerPoint Presentations - PPT
15-8. Benzene undergoes substitution reactions with electrophiles.. Electrophiles attack benzene by substituting for a hydrogen atom, not addition to the ring.. Under the conditions of this type of reaction, ordinary non-aromatic conjugated polyenes would polymerize rapidly..
In 1825, Michael Faraday isolated a hydrocarbon called benzene, which consists of a six-carbon ring with alternating double bonds and the molecular formula C. 6. H. 6. . . Learning Goal . Describe the bonding in benzene; name aromatic compounds, and draw their line-angle structural formulas..

Professor William Tam received his B.Sc. at the University of Hong Kong in 1990 and his Ph.D. at the University of Toronto (Canada) in 1995. He was an NSERC postdoctoral fellow at the Imperial College (UK) and at Harvard University (USA). He joined the Department of Chemistry at the University of Guelph (Ontario, Canada) in 1998 and is currently a Full Professor and Associate Chair in the department. Professor Tam has received several awards in research and teaching, and according to .
Leon. María. Elena. Larissa. Vanillin. Information. History of benzene. Ring structure. Functional groups. Hückel’s. rule. Vanillin. History of benzene. The . empirical formula for benzene had been long known, but its highly unsaturated structure was a challenge to determine. .
15-4. The UV-visible spectrum of benzene reveals its electronic structure.. The energy gap between bonding and antibonding orbitals is greater in benzene than for acyclic trienes.. The UV spectra of benzene shows absorbances at smaller wavelengths (higher energy) than does the spectra of 1,3,5-hexatriene:.
Benzene is aromatic: a cyclic conjugated compound with 6 . . electrons. Reactions of benzene lead to the retention of the aromatic core. Types of Reactions. Electrophilic. substitution. Diazonium.
