Lesson Worksheet: Reactions of Benzene Chemistry
In this worksheet, we will practice describing addition and substitution reactions of benzene and predicting what products are formed.
The tosyl group is used extensively in organic synthesis, and it is the anionic derivative of the tosylic acid shown. Which two reagents would react when heated to form tosylic acid and water?
- ABenzene and sulfur dioxide
- BNitrobenzene and sulfuric acid
- CBenzene and sulfuric acid
- DToluene and sulfuric acid
- EToluene and hydrogen sulfide
The reaction scheme shows how benzene can react with halogens in different ways depending on the reaction conditions shown.
