Unformatted text preview: CH 3 COOH, 5°C N H NO 2 Write resonance structures for the intermediate formed by attack at 2- and 3-positions of pyrrole. From the examination of the intermediates offer an explanation for the preferential nitration at the 2-position. 4. Treatment of benzene with succinic anhydride in the presence of a strong acid, such as phosphoric acid, gives the following γ-ketoacid. Propose a detailed stepwise mechanism for this reaction.
