Unformatted text preview: chlorotoluene with hydroxide at high temperature and pressure. Two products were obtained: 1-hydroxy-2-methylbenzene and 1-hydroxy-3-methylbenzene. • We wrapped up aromatic chemistry by considering some useful reactions of aromatic compounds. Specifically, we discussed the reduction of nitro-groups using Fe/HCl. Here, we convert the nitro group (a meta-director) to an amino group (an ortho/para director). • We begin Chapter 23 on Amines. Amines are remarkable compounds and have profound biological activities. In class, we took a look at the structures of some of the more “news-worthy” amines such as Novocain, Sudafed, Quinine, etc. ....
