Lesson Plan: Reactions of Benzene Chemistry

This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to describe addition and substitution reactions of benzene and predict what products are formed.

Objectives

Students will be able to

  • describe the reactants, catalysts, and reaction conditions of the following substitution reactions of benzene:
    • halogenation,
    • alkylation (Friedel–Crafts),
    • nitration,
    • sulfonation,
  • describe the reactants, catalysts, and reaction conditions of the following addition reactions of benzene:
    • hydrogenation,
    • halogenation,
  • predict the products of addition and substitution reactions of benzene,
  • provide examples of uses for the products of substitution reactions of benzene.

Prerequisites

Students should already be familiar with

  • properties of benzene.

Exclusions

Students will not cover

  • reaction mechanisms,
  • activating/deactivating substituents,
  • any reactions other than those listed above.
