This question already has an answer here:

Does not get substituted by another group it just gets removed (so not aryl) what is it? Like when two benzene rings lose one H atom each we get arylene? Whats another name for it? I just need the name for when the atom is removed and NOT subtituted Thank you

Edit: thats not the answer I asked for I asked what it was called when it lost the hydrogen atom and you say its aryl but thats when a group is in place of the lost atom

The name of the benzene minus a hydrogen is called a phenyl group (C6H5). https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phenyl_group Look this page up for more information. The question you've asked is very similar to the one that @Gaurang has commented, so just be careful when you ask questions on here. Hope this helps

  • $\begingroup$ Is that when it doesnt get subtituted by a functional group? $\endgroup$ – iat Mar 21 '18 at 13:47
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, it says in the wiki page as well. $\endgroup$ – David Wyn Williams Mar 21 '18 at 13:55
  • $\begingroup$ But wheb I read it it says that the "ar" refers to the group $\endgroup$ – iat Mar 21 '18 at 14:05
  • $\begingroup$ Ar refers to aryl, which is a broader denotation of the group. Phenyl I believe is the correct/ more used term. $\endgroup$ – David Wyn Williams Mar 21 '18 at 15:07
