Expert Answer

Step 1

The reactions that are common to aromatic compounds are to be explained with example.

Step 2

The aromatic compounds are the organic compounds that have a planar ring structure with delocalized pi electrons and also follow Hückel’s Rule.

Hückel’s Rule states that the total number of pi electrons in a ring must be (4n+ 2) where n = 0 or any positive integer.

Step 3

The common types of reactions that aromatic compounds undergo are-

  1. Aromatic substitution ...
