Toluene + bromine
I mixed toulene + bromine and dichloromethane together, to see if a reaction occurs(decolourizes). However, i read in my lab manual that this test should be negative for aromatics. So is toluene suppose to be negative as well? If so i think something went wrong with my experiment. Thanks.

What they meant by aromatic was probably benzene, toulene will react with bromine under appropriate conditions, for instance through a light catalyzed pathway...however its the methyl group which will react, not the aromatic ring.
