How does the structure of benzene differ from the cyclohexane structure?
Cyclohexane does not have an aromatic circle.
Cyclohexane has no double bonds between the carbons, its formula is C6H12, while benzene has 3 double bonds with the formula C6H6. Those double bonds are conjugated with the rest of the molecule, which is what we call an "aromatic" cycle.
Well, for a start, the aromatic benzene ring is PLANAR...
Well, for a start, the aromatic benzene ring is PLANAR...i.e. a six-membered ring with all the carbon and hydrogen nuclei occupying the same plane, and each
