An Introduction to the Chemistry of Benzenoid Compounds is an introductory text to some chemical aspects of benzenoid compounds. This book is composed of 13 chapters that specifically cover the sources, properties, and reactions of these compounds. The opening chapters describe the structural aspects of benzenoid compounds, including their homologues, isomers, and aromaticity. The subsequent chapters deal with the disubstitution and addition reactions of the benzene nucleus. Considerable chapters are devoted to the synthesis of benzenoid derivatives, such as aromatic halides, nitro-compounds, carbonyl compounds, acids, and amines, phenols, alcohols, and naphthalene. The final chapter introduces the chemistry of anthracene, phenanthrene, and polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons. This book is of value to organic chemistry students.
