The preferred order of proton removal in Hofmann elimination reactions is b CH 3 . b CH 2 . b CH. Ethylene is the major alkene formed, the observed ratio of ethylene to 1-butene being 98 : 2. 22.14 ( b ) The pattern of substituents in 2,4-dinitroaniline suggests that they can be introduced by dini- tration. Since nitration of aniline itself is not practical, the amino group must be protected by conversion to its N -acetyl derivative. Hydrolysis of the amide bond in 2,4-dinitroacetanilide furnishes the desired 2,4-dinitroaniline. ( c ) Retrosynthetically, p -aminoacetanilide may be derived from p -nitroacetanilide.
