Homework Help: Chemistry

Posted by Jenny on Thursday, March 1, 2012 at 4:58pm.

I was wondering if anyone could describe a general Friedel-Crafts alkylation to me. I understand that it involves the substitution of an aromatic ring with an alkyl group using a strong Lewis acid catalyst. But, what types of activating groups are present on the ring? What's the position of substitution? And what types of electrophiles are used?
