Learning Outcomes are summarized lists of the main ideas/skills that students should take away from a chapter. “Learning Outcomes” lists are not exhaustive; there may be other ideas/skills covered in the chapter that are also useful but not necessarily the main focus.
For Chapter 10 the Learning Outcomes are:
1. Draw the mechanism and major products of electrophilic aromatic substitution reactions (including halogenation, nitration, sulfonation, Friedel-Crafts alkylation and Friedel-Crafts acylation reactions).
2. Determine if substituents on aromatic compounds are ortho/para directing or meta directing.
3. Determine if substituents on aromatic compounds are activating or deactivating for a subsequent electrophilic aromatic substitution. Use this information to compare and contrast relative strength of activating/deactivating groups and the effect(s) this has on the rates of chemical reactions.
4. Design short syntheses of small aromatic compounds accounting for the above factors.
