The reaction as written conforms to the requirements of the problem that a balanced equationbe written. Of course, the reaction will be much faster if catalyzed by acid or base, but the cat-alysts do not enter into the equation representing the overall process.(g)Bromination of the aromatic ring of 2,6-dichlorophenol occurs para to the hydroxy group. Themore activating group (GOH) determines the orientation of the product.(h)In aqueous solution bromination occurs at all the open positions that are ortho and para to thehydroxyl group.(i)Hydrogen bromide cleaves ethers to give an alkyl halide and a phenol.24.14(a)Strongly electron-withdrawing groups, particularly those such as GNO2, increase the acidity
