QUESTION

# How does the structure of benzene differ from the cyclohexane structure?

The above structure is a benzene ring. Its chemical formula isC_6 H_6

The above structure is a cyclohexane ring. Its chemical formula isC_6 H_12

Some major differences in their structure include • Benzene is an aromatic compound but cyclohexane is not aromatic.

• Benzene is an unsaturated molecule, but cyclohexane is saturated.

• Carbon atoms in the benzene ring have sp^2 hybridization where carbon atoms in the cyclohexane have sp^3 hybridization.

• Benzene has a planar structure whereas cyclohexane has chair conformations.

• Benzene has alternate double bonds and alternate single bonds while cyclohexane has only single bonds
