Benzene and its Derivatives-I

  • David A. Robinson
  • John McK. Woollard


The electrophilic substitution reactions of benzene have been described in the previous chapter. Two additional reactions of benzene are covered in this chapter. The rest of the chapter is devoted to the reactions of benzene derivatives, having electron-withdrawing substituents on the ring. Since most of these have been covered in earlier chapters and the reactions of the ring have been covered in Chapter 34, this is virtually a chapter of review and revision: very few new reactions are met.
