The c ycIopentadienyl system is stabilized in the anion form where it has 6 'It e lectrons, a Huckel number. The question then becomes: which of the four structures can lose a proton to become aromatic? 3 Whi le the first, third, and fourth structures can lose protons from sp carbons to give resonance­ stabilized anions, onl y the second structure can make a cycIopentadienide anion. It w i l l lose a proton most easily of these four structures which, by definition, means it is the strongest acid. £ .& ¢ C H3 CHJ p-xylene 1 6-31 (a) H yly H H VH H H H H � H H AROMATIC H H H H �� H H H H H H H 351 H ...
