Substituent groups on a benzene ring affect electrophilic aromatic substitution reactions in two ways: 1) reactivity activate (faster than benzene) or deactivate (slower than benzene) 2) orientation ortho- + para- direction or meta- direction
Background image of page 6
-CH 3 activates the benzene ring towards EAS directs substitution to the ortho- & para- positions -NO 2 deactivates the benzene ring towards EAS directs substitution to the meta - position
