Its utility is best demonstrated by a considera- tion of several specific examples. An amino group may be useful in a synthesis because of its effect on

Unformatted text preview: the position assumed by an incoming substituent. The free ann'no group and its acyl derivatives are strongly ortho-para orienting; conver-sion to the ammonium salt produces a meio-directing group.* Advan-tage is taken, therefore, of the directing influence of this group in syn-thesizing compounds otherwise difficult to secure. Thus, bromination of aniline gives symmetrical tribromoaniline, which may be deaminated to 1,3,5-tribromobenzene in an over-all yield of 65-72%. 29 This appears to be the only practical method of preparing 1,3,5-tribromobenzene. Similarly, 2-nitro-3'-bromobiphenyl is obtained from benzidine in good yield by utilizing the meto-orienting influence of the ammonium ion, the. ortho-oiientiag effect of the amino group, and finally deaminating. 62 * For an account of this subject see Sidgwick's "Organic Chemistry of Nitrogen," revised by Taylor and Baker, pp. 69-70, Oxford Press, 1937....
