CHAPTER 23 ARYL HALIDES SOLUTIONS TO TEXT PROBLEMS 23.1 There are four isomers of C 7 H 7 Cl that contain a benzene ring, namely, o , m , and p -chlorotoluene and benzyl chloride. Of this group only benzyl chloride is not an aryl halide; its halogen is not attached to the aromatic ring but to an sp 3 -hybridized carbon. Benzyl chloride has the weakest carbon–halogen bond, its measured carbon–chlorine bond dissociation energy being only 293 kJ/mol (70 kcal/mol). Homolytic cleavage of this bond produces a resonance-stabilized benzyl radical.
