    "A benzene ring is a molecular structure that is created when six carbon atoms connect with each other in a linked ring. Each carbon atom has four electrons; two electrons link up with neighboring carbon atoms, while one goes to a hydrogen atom. The fourth is what is known as a delocalized electron, meaning that it is not directly involved with a specific atom. Benzene rings are often drawn as hexagonal shapes with a circle in the middle to represent these delocalized electrons. Benzene happens to be a particularly toxic form of aromatic hydrocarbon."

    Just movement of pi electrons in the ring so as to increase the electron density at ortho and para positions.

    lol not too much into electron charges of attraction that help create molecule shapes
