Assignment #5 CHM2120 /2009 T. Durst This assignment deals with the recognition of aromatic rings other than benzene, the properties of anilines and phenols. The chemistry at the benzylic position. The introduction of a second and third substituent into a benzene ring and the manipulation of side changes.

If you do then there is a much greater likelihood that you will do well in an exam which has the same question but with different substituents.
