What deductions can you make from the following information? 1. benzene is a hydrocarbon containing 92.3% carbon and a vapour density of 39. 2) under the influence of utra -violet light 1 mole of benzene reacts with 3 moles of chlorine without the production of hydrogen cholride. (3 toluene reacts with alkaline potassium permanganate solution but benzene does not.
We have hydrocarbon CxHy
n of C : n of H = x:y = 0.923/12 : 0.077/1 = 1:1 It have general formula CnHn
CnHn + 3Cl2 = CnHnCl6 It must have three double bonds ( or maby 2 triple bonds)
3. CnHn is aromatic compounds without chains outside the aromatic ring
