    HEY :P,
    i dont understand when benzene ring is the main functional room when naming aromatic compounds . could someone explain this to me ?

    thank you , would really appreciate it

    Benzene ring is an aromatic compound itself.

    Usually if a carbon chain attached to a benzene ring is larger than the ring i.e 6+ carbons long, the benzene ring is a phenyl group but if a carbon chain attached to it is shorter than 6 carbons it is a benzene compound e.g. methylbenzene/benzoic acid.

    From what I remember from the A-level the benzene ring loses priority when there are 7 or more carbon atoms in the alkyl group:
    Methylbenzene
    Ethylbenzene
    Propylbenzene
    Butylbenzene
    Pentylbenzene
    Hexylbenzene
    Phenylheptane
    Phenyloctane
    Etc...

    As far as I'm aware Benzoic Acid is just the name of that specific molecule and does not follow a standard nomenclature.
