Synthetic Applications and Strategies The influence of substituents on electrophilic aromatic substitution reactions requires special attention to the order in which they are introduced into a benzene ring in the syntheses of substituted benzenes. Example: The nitration and bromination of benzene. HNO 3 H 2 SO 4 NO 2 Br 2 Fe Br NO 2 Br Br 2 Fe HNO 3 H 2 SO 4 Br + NO 2 Br NO 2 m-bromonitrobenzene ortho para 38% 62%

Example: The oxidation and nitration of toluene. CH 3 toluene (i) KMnO 4 , HO - , heat (ii) H 3 O + COOH HNO 3 H 2 SO 4 CH 3 CH 3 + NO 2 NO 2 HNO 3 H 2 SO 4 COOH NO 2 m-nitrobenzoic acid (i) KMnO 4 , HO - heat (ii) H 3 O + (i) KMnO 4 , HO - heat (ii) H 3 O + COOH COOH + NO 2 NO 2 ortho para All three possible positional isomers of nitrobenzoic acid may be synthesized by careful synthetic design.

Modification of Amino and Hydroxyl Groups by Acetylation These groups are highly activating in electrophilic aromatic substitution reactions: NH 2 aniline Br 2 aqueous solution NH 2 Br Br Br 2,,4,6-tribromoaniline It is difficult to limit this reaction to monobromination.
