Explain the process associated with the acylation of benzene?


Expert Answer

Step 1

Friedel-Craft’s acylation:

In Friedel-Crafts acylation, aromatic ring is treated with acid chloride and Lewis acid to form a ketone.  It is an electrophilic substitution reaction.

The new group bonded to the aromatic ring is acyl group, hence it is called acylation.

Step 2

The process associated with the acylation of benzene is Friedel-Cr...
