Organic Chemistry for General Degree Students, Volume 2: Aromatic Chemistry presents the fundamental aspects of aromatic chemistry. This book explores the systematic study in the first instance of the chemistry of functional groups, based on their structural characteristics in aliphatic systems. Organized into 11 chapters, this volume begins with an overview of the properties of the aromatic nucleus followed by a consideration of the manner in which interaction with the aromatic system may alter the reactivity of functional groups. Other chapters explain the two distinctly different classes of aromatic halogen compounds. This text discusses as well the properties of an aromatic amine, which is characterized by having at least one aromatic system attached to the nitrogen atom and may be further categorized as primary, secondary, or tertiary according to the degree of substitution of the nitrogen. The final chapter examines the classical structure for thiophen. This book is a valuable resource for organic chemists and students.
