I was supposed to write a 1 - 2 page paper on aromatic electrophilic substitution. I totally forgot to write it, since I am a faggy retard. Now I really need some help, I know that the questions for the paper are not hard, but I am still lost.
1. I am supposed to explain, in words only, what happens when 4-Hydroxytoulen transforms into BHT for both reaction 1 and 2. So basically I need to explain the differences in each reaction.
2. The I just need to state which of the two methods are the most environment-friendly.
This is what I do understand. In reaction 1, the Isobutane is not that great of an electrophile (and you need a really strong electrophile substitute a Hydrogen in a Benzene ring). So the H2SO4 makes the Isobutane into a good electrophile. Right?
