							The most efficient stabilization of the intermediate carbocation produced by electrophilic attack on naphthalene comes from those resonance forms which retain one fully benzenoid ring. In the case of 1-substitution, two such structures can be drawn (A, B). For 2-substitution there is only one structure (F). The intermediate from attack at the 1-position is more stable and therefore the 1-substituted product is favoured in the reactions of electropholic substitution of naphthalene.554-62_Capture.PNG
