Why is aniline not a heterocyclic nitrogen compound?
« on: April 07, 2004, 07:59:16 PM »
Okay I have this question?  Why is Aniline not considered to be a heterocyclic nitrogen compound?  

is this correct?

A compund containing an acyclic chain and a heterocyclic ring is considered as a heterocyclic compound....an aniline hydrochloride is classified as containing carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen only.

Because Aniline doesn't have it's Nitrogen in the ring.

Most Common Suggestions I Make on the Forums.
1. Start by writing a balanced chemical equation.
2. Don't confuse thermodynamic stability with chemical reactivity.
3. Forum Supports LaTex
