Unformatted text preview: Br + FeBr 4 BrBr + FeBr 3 b) Nitration H H E E Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution Although the aromatic ring systems are stable to simple electrophilic addition of E + A type reagents, the aromatic ring can be caused to react with powerful electrophilic reagents in a substitution reaction. The reaction is written as (using benzene as the example): arenium ion E + A + + HA N + O O HO N O O HO H Note that E + has "substituted" for a hydrogen atom, hence the name electrophilic aromatic substitution. Note also that A does not add to the arenium ion since this would result in the loss of aromaticity. Thus the lowest energy path involves loss of H+ (similar to the E1 path in carbocation reactions).

The rate of reaction of a substituted benzene with E + A is governed by the stability of the transition state leading to the arenium ion....
