11.25 ( a ) There are three isomeric nitrotoluenes, because the nitro group can be ortho, meta, or para to the methyl group. ( b ) Benzoic acid is C 6 H 5 CO 2 H. In the isomeric dichlorobenzoic acids, two of the ring hydrogens of benzoic acid have been replaced by chlorines. The isomeric dichlorobenzoic acids are The pre f xes o- , m- , and p - may not be used in trisubstituted arenes; numerical pre f xes are used. Note also that benzenecarboxylic may be used in place of benzoic. ( c ) In the various tribromophenols, we are dealing with tetrasubstitution on a benzene ring. Again, o- , m- , and p - are not valid pre f xes. The hydroxyl group is assigned position 1 because
