By John D. Hepworth

This publication presents an up to date and finished account of fragrant chemistry. a chain of chapters describes the synthesis and reactions of the main practical derivatives of benzene and the extra universal polycyclic structures. The techniques of aromaticity and the mechanism of fragrant substitution are mentioned, as is using metals within the synthesis of fragrant compounds. all through, emphasis is put on mechanisms. labored difficulties and questions are supplied to assist knowing.

In addition to offering fabric required by means of an undergraduate learning chemistry, Aromatic Chemistry can also be excellent for business chemists trying to replace their wisdom of this significant point of chemistry.

Some alkyl cations rearrange to form the most stable ion, thus accounting for the isomerization noted earlier. 3 In the case of acyl chlorides, reaction with the Lewis acid generates . 4). Again, it is questionable whether a free cation is formed or if a complex between the acyl group and AlCl, is the attacking species. 5). Although symmetrical by-products are also formed, it is possible to introduce long unbranched side-chains by this route without isomerization occurring. 1 Reactions of the Ring An alkyl group activates the ring to electrophilic substitution mainly through an inductive effect and directs attack to the 2- and 4-positions.

3). 4 The Acidity of Phenols Phenols are converted into salts with strong alkalis such as sodium hydroxide, but not with sodium hydrogen carbonate solution. They are therefore stronger acids than alcohols but weaker than carboxylic acids. 20 for benzoic acid and about 17 for cyclohexanol. 6). 6 Phenols for the anion (7-9) as there is for phenol (4-6). Thus, the equilibrium between phenol and its anion is displaced towards the latter species, with a corresponding increase in acidity. The influence of ring substituents on the acidity of the phenolic group is dependent on the electronic properties of the substituent and its position in the ring relative to the hydroxyl group, Consider first the three mononitrophenols.

8). 3 Reactivity and Orientation in Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution How do derivatives of benzene behave towards electrophilic attack? Two experimental observations illustrate that the behaviour is quite varied. The rate of nitration of toluene is appreciably faster than that of benzene and produces a mixture of 2- and 4-nitrotoluenes. 9). e. which isomer is formed It is important to understand why this should happen. In the above examples, the two substituents, the methyl group and the nitro group, exhibit different electronic behaviour.
