Problem 1P

Problem 1P

Step 2 of the iodination of benzene shows water acting as a base and removing a proton from the sigma complex. We did not consider the possibility of water acting as a nucleophile and attacking the carbocation, as in an electrophilic addition to an alkene. Draw the reaction that would occur if water reacted as a nucleophile and added to the carbocation. Explain why this type of addition is rarely observed.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 1P

 Water reacted as a nucleophile and added to the carbocation.

The addition of this product is not formed because in this case the aromaticity of benzene ring is lost.
