However, benzene does undergo substitution reactions with a wide range of electrophiles – electrophilic aromatic substitution is the most common reaction a benzene ring can undergo. 11.1.1 Generalized Mechanism The mechanism of substitution is a two-step process, where E + is the electrophilic species:
