Haloarenes are less reactive than


 Haloarenes are less reactive than haloalkanes and haloalkenes. Explain.


This is because of the resonance stabilization of the aryl ring. If we take an example of C6H5-Cl, there will be a conjugation of chlorine electrons with the electrons in the

ring. This resonance makes C-Cl bond to get partial double bond character and makes less reactive to nucleophilic substitution.
