aromatic chlorination CuCl2 ?



Id like to know how CuCl2 chlorinates xylene toluene and benzene. It seems that the nucleus of benzene is chlorinated
by CuCl2, but wil this also occur on xylenes and toluene ? with
toluene wil i get chlorotoluene or benzylchloride ? if chlorination
of xylenes and toluene wil be as same as for benzene, wil the chlorination happen on the pare or meta position of the aromatic ring.

:P

There are papers out there.

I found them with a tool called Google.

It is generally useful for finding things by typing the magic sequence www.google.com into the address bar of your browser.

Another less well-known trick is to type scholar.google.com which opens up an entirely different search engine, full of results.

I would like to know if my farts can produce time-travel, but i doubt that simply posting that question here will get any results.

I think it clorinates the functional groups rather than the bensene ring. Also if you do get cucl to clorinate it would most likely be a ortho/para reaction as CH3 is a weak activating group. Although what exactly do you want to do?

Also if you do get CuCl2 to clorinate xylene/toluene it would most likely be a ortho/para reaction as CH3 is a weak activating group. Also if it reacts with xylene the ortho vs para percentage ratio would most likely depend upon styrical hindrance. Might also help if you say what exactly you want to accomplish ?

I like to produce a chloro benzene instead of a benzylchloride

React with a metal halide ( AlCl3, CuCl3 etc.) as catalyst and clorine gas if you want to make clorobenzene. Do some research.
