NEET 2016 Phase 2

In pyrrole the electron density is maximum on
A
2 and 3
B
3 and 4
C
2 and 4
D
2 and 5

Explanation

Pyrrole has maximum electron density on 2 and 5. It generally reacts with electrophiles at the C-2 or C-5 due to the highest degree of stability of the protonated intermediate.

Attack at position 3 or 4 yields a carbocation that is a hybrid of structures (I) and (II). Attack at position 2 or 5 yields a carbocation that is a hybrid not only of structures (III) and (IV) (analogous to I and II) but also of structure (V). The extra stabilization conferred by (V) makes this ion the more stable one.

Also, attack at position 2 or 5 is faster because the developing positive charge is accommodated by three atoms of the ring instead of by only two.

Which of the following can be used as the halide component for Friedel-Crafts reaction?
A
Chlorobenzene
B
Bromobenzene
C
Chloroethane
D
Isopropyl chloride

Explanation

Friedel–Crafts reaction :

Chlorobenzene, bromobenzene and chloroethene are not suitable halide components as lone pair of electrons of halogen are delocalized with $$\pi $$-bonds to attain double bond (C = X) character.
