    Ayman! C0balt can you guys explain why the lines are in the order that they are? I thought that since benzene = -205 or whatever it was and structure X (Kekulé) = -354 (3 * -118), shouldn't the line for X be below that of benzene??

    Because cyclohexane is at the bottom, so to go from benzene to it is -205ish whereas from X is -360ish so bigger jump. If you took cyclohexane as your 0, then by definition upwards benzene is at +205 and x is at +360

    You mean high resistance

    I agree
    Yeah woops

    Forgive me if I'm wrong, but how does oxygen have anything to do with a flame being sooty? Soot = Carbon. Oxygen plays no part here.
    The fact that one mole of benzene requires 15 moles of oxygen should sound TOO DAMN HIGH.

    It cropped up in one of my lessons and it is said that complete combustion of benzene won't always occur because of this.
    So instead of complete combustion you get incomplete combustion, hence the production of our favourites: carbon (and carbon monoxide).

    Because you only get carbon when there isn't enough oxygen to react with it to form co2. So if it requires a huge amount of oxygen to burn completely, it's more likely that there won't be enough oxygen available

    It's all right

    We're all here to learn.

    Has chromium chemistry come up in much of the recent past papers? As well as uses of transition metals in industry? Could be something to revise if not.

    I'm pretty sure we don't need to know it although check the spec just in case

    It's in the spec and I don't think I've come across it in past papers. Knowing Edexcel it's probably better to be familiar with those preparations

    Hi everyone, would appreciate if anyone can help me out in these mcqs:

    1. If the temperature of of the nitration of benzene is allowed to rise too high, dinitration and trinitration can occur. This is the evidence that the:
    A) nitro group is electron withdrawing
    B) nitro group is electron donating
    C) delocalisation energy of nitrobenzene is greater than that of benzene.
    D) delocalisation energy of nitrobenzene is less than that of benzene.
    Why is the answer A? I thought it was B.

    2. June 2015 IAL Q17 Why is the answer B?

    I got that wrong but I think it's because the nitrogen has a lone pair which can be delocalised into the ring and making the ring more susceptible to further electrophilic attack

    Edit
    I'm wrong ignore me thanksss
