This is formation of ketone.
By the following steps in Friedel Craft's Reaction.
ACYCLATION OCCURS -RCO group attaches to benzene group (R=Ch3)
here, Propanoyl chloride reacts with AlCl3, where forming an electrophile Ch3Ch2CO and forming AlCl4-
So Ch3Ch2CO attacks the benzene ring.
And ketone having a C=O have 2 Ch3 group adjacent to it.
So count benzene ring as a Ch3 group, and
and in another adjacent side Ch3Ch2.
I am sorry man, this is what i at most understand.
I am giving my A2 this may. Scared as hell.
