Reactions, Part II

benzene an organic chemical compound with the molecular formula C6H6. It is sometimes abbreviated Ph–H. It is a colorless and highly flammable liquid with a sweet smell and a relatively high melting point
aromaticity chemical property in which a conjugated ring exhibit a stabilization stronger than would be expected by the stabilization of conjugation alone. It can also be considered a manifestation of cyclic delocalization and of resonance
huckel's rule A cyclic ring molecule follows this rule when the number of its π-electrons equals 4n+2 where n is zero or any positive integer
molecular orbital theory is a method for determining molecular structure in which electrons are not assigned to individual bonds between atoms, but are treated as moving under the influence of the nuclei in the whole molecule.
most characteristic aromatic compound reaction Electrophilic aromatic substitution or Ar-H in Halogenation, Nitration, Sulfonation, Alkylation, and Acylation reactions
three general steps to electrophilic aromatic substitution 1. Generation of electrophile(E+)2.Attack of electrophile on ring to give Carbocation intermediate(C+) 3. Proton transfer to a base(Base-H)

why is the order for electrophilic substitution important because there are three isomeric products possible that may be ortho, meta, or para position to the first group substituted not only orientation is affected but so is the rate of further substitution
