Step 1 of 5) The simplest aromatic hydrocarbon, benzene 1C6H62, is shown in Figure 24.10 along with some other aromatic hydrocarbons. Benzene is the most important aromatic hydrocarbon, and most of our discussion focuses on it. When the C6H5–group is a substituent in a compound, it is known (confusingly) as the phenyl group.Line formulas and common names of several aromatic compounds. The aromatic rings are represented by hexagons with a circle inscribed inside to denote delocalized p bonds. Each vertex represents a carbon atom. Each carbon is bound to three other atoms—either three carbons, or two carbons and a hydrogen—so that each carbon has the requisite four bonds.If you draw one Lewis structure for benzene, you draw a ring that contains three CC double bonds and three single CC bonds. (Section 8.6) You might therefore expect benzene to resemble the alkenes and to be highly reactive.
