Grids to Illustrate Induction and Resonance Effects: Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution

submitted on 14.02.2020, 17:14 and posted on 18.02.2020, 11:12 by Guy Lamoureux, Carlos Árias-Alvarez
The effect of substituents on the reactivity in electrophilic aromatic substitution has been organized in a grid to demonstrate the inductive and resonance effects. This scheme can also incorporate the competition between donation and withdrawal. In class games are proposed from which undergraduate students can practice the effects while playing.
