An oxygen substituent directly attached to the ring strongly activates it toward electrophilic aromatic substitution. Phenyl acetate is much more reactive than benzene or methyl benzoate. Bromination of methyl benzoate requires more vigorous conditions; catalysis by iron(III) bro- mide is required for bromination of deactivated aromatic rings. ( d ) Acetanilide is strongly activated toward electrophilic aromatic substitution and reacts faster than nitrobenzene, which is strongly deactivated. ( e ) Both substrates are of the type and are activated toward Friedel Crafts acylation. Since electronic effects are comparable, we look to differences in steric factors and conclude that reaction will be faster for R
