    I've been thinking, kelkule said that benzene doesn't have the same physical properties as the ones of alkenes (in terms of reactivity) because there were two forms (resonance hybrids) of the molecule. Since these two forms were in a very rapid equilibrium with each other this would mean that say for example as bromine approached the benzene, the benzene would change to it's other form and therefore it would not polorise the bromine molecule. My question is that if ozone has resonance hybrids, why does it react so vigurously with CFS's? shouldn't the ozone change to it's other form as soon as the free radical approached it?

    This is my first post on here

    the kelkule model is incorrect


    everything is mathematical.
