    I understand the first part of this reaction, but I've never seen the second part, where you add Cl2 and H20. Does anyone know the mechanism for this reaction? I was thinking it was some kind of Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution but you usually see Cl2 with a lewis acid like AlCl3 and you only do the monochlorination, not the dichlorination as they do here.

    Thanks.
