Chapter 14 Aromatic Compounds One classifcation oF organic compounds is as: Aliphatic vs. Aromatic Aliphatic compounds were originally classifed as “Fat-like” materials. Now classifed as alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, and their derivatives. Aromatic compounds were originally classifed as having a Fragrant odor and having a very high hydrogen to carbon ratio. Now, aromatic compounds are exemplifed by benzene and known to have specifc electronic structures and reactivity.

The Special Stability of Benzene Benzene does not show the chemical reactivity of an alkene. The aromatic ring structure shows an unusual stability, a resistance to change. rapid hydroxylation no reaction rapid addition no reaction rapid addition no reaction hydrogenation 25 o C, 20 psi very slow hydrogenation >100 o C, 1500 psi Comparative Chemical Reactivity of Cyclohexene and Benzene Reagents cold, dilute KMnO 4 Br 2 /CCl 4 HI H 2 /Ni
