How do substituent groups (G) on an aromatic ring influence the course of electrophilic aromatic substitution?

Asked by Topperlearning User | 24th Jul, 2014, 03:46: PM

Expert Answer:

Such substituent groups affect the electrophilic aromatic substitution in two ways :

a) Reactivity or rate of reaction: The ones more reactive than benzene are activating, and those less reactive are deactivating.

b)Orientation : Whether Electrophilic group enters ortho , meta or para position.
