Electrophilic aromatic substitution (1)

Organic chemistry: Electrophilic aromatic substitution (EAS) of benzene—halogenation, nitration, sulfonation, Friedel-Crafts alkylation and alkanoylation. Electron-withdrawing and electron-donating groups—activators vs. deactivators, ortho/para-directors vs. meta-directors.
