CHEM118B QUIZ 4 (MONDAY LABS –O8/31) 1) Write down the major product of following reaction (20pts) COOCH 3 HNO 3 H 2 SO 4 COOCH 3 NO 2 2) Explain question 1 by resonance structures? (25pts) COOCH 3 O N O COOCH 3 NO 2 H COOCH 3 NO 2 H COOCH 3 NO 2 H Better resonance structures can be drawn for nitration at the meta position. Also take note that the ester is a deactivating group that directs the incoming electrophile to the meta position. However, substitution at the para position results in the positive charge next to the already partial positively charged carbonyl (shown below), which is destabilizing. Thus ortho or para positions not preferred. COOCH 3 O N O COOCH 3 NO 2 H COOCH 3 NO 2 H COOCH 3 NO 2 H destabilizing contributor
