Unformatted text preview: 642 AMINES (e) Conversion of o-fluoroanisole to 4-amino-2-fluoroanisole proceeds in the conventional way by preparation and reduction of a nitro derivative. Once the necessary arylamine is at hand, it is converted to the nitrile by a Sandmeyer reaction. Diazotization followed by hydrolysis of the 4-amino-2-fluoroanisole prepared as an intermediate in part (d ) yields the desired phenol. OCH3 OCH3 NH2 OCH3 F F 1.

First, however, the nitrogen must be acylated so as to protect the ring from oxidation.

The fluorine substituent can be introduced by way of the diazonium tetrafluoroborate, the propanoyl group by way of a Friedel– Crafts acylation. Because the fluorine substituent is ortho, para-directing, introducing it first gives the proper orientation of substituents.
