Aromatic Reactions

Below are a few of the simplest ring subtitutions that are possible.

1.    Bromine substitution

2.   Chlorine substitution

3.    Nitro substitution

4.    Alkyl Substitution

+   HCl

eg. of reaction 4

+   HCl

5.   Side Chain Oxidation (No matter what is on the side chain it will get removed leaving only a carboxylic acid.

eg.  stryene is oxidized to benzoic acid
