Chemistry Of Benzene: Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution. 1P

Given that monobromination of toluene gives a mixture of three bromotoluenes as products. Their structures are to be drawn and their names are to be given. Concept introduction: When a monosubstituted benzene undergoes electrophilic substitution reaction, the second electrophile can enter into either ortho or para or meta position. Normally depending upon the nature of the substituent group already present the ortho and para isomers or the meta isomer is obtained as the major product. To draw: The structures of three monobromotoluenes obtained by monobromination of toluenes.
