Introduction BENZENE

Aromatic hydrocarbons or arenes are the compounds of carbon and hydrogen which contain at least one benzene type ring (hexagonal ring of carbons) in their molecules. We have hydrocarbons of benzene series (containing one benzene ring), hydrocarbons of naphthalene series (two fused benzene rings) and so on. Names and structures of some common arenes are given below:

In this Unit, you will study about the structure and properties of the simplest arene and benzene
