Question

Of the following compounds, whose ozonolysis proves the Kekule structure of benzene?


A
Benzene
loader
B
Toluene
loader
C
o-Xylene
loader
D
p-Xylene
loader

Solution

The correct option is D o-Xylene
o-Xylene on ozonolysis gives glyoxal: methylglyoxal: dimethyl glyoxal in the ratio $$3:2:1$$, which proves the existence of resonance in benzene and hence proves the Kekule structure of benzene.
