True or false: The rules for naming substituted benzenes are the same as the rules for naming cycloalkanes. (If false, correct the statement)
True or false: If there is no common name for a given substituted benzene, then name it according to IUPAC system. (If false, correct the statement)
False: If there is no common name for a given substituted benzene, then simply name the substituent as part of the benzene base. (Substituent)+(Benzene) e.g. (Isopropyl)+(benzene)=Isopropylbenzene or (Ethyl)+(benzene)=Ethylbenzene
How do you name benzene as a substituent of another group?
In cases where the benzene is attached to only one other atom, as in Ph---Cl, then use the prefix "phenyl" and then add the base with the ending "ide" In cases where the benzene is attached to a chain of atoms, as in Ph-CH2Br, use the prefix "benzyl"
