Oxidation of the Side Chain of Arenes Strong oxidizing agents oxidize alkyl and alkenyl side chains to aryl carboxylic acids . A standard reagent is hot alkaline potassium permanganate . CH 3 CH 3 p-xylene (i) KMnO 4 , KOH, heat (ii) H 3 O + COOH COOH terephthalic acid CH 2 CH 2 CH 2 CH 3 CH 3 1-p-tolylbutane (i) KMnO 4 , KOH, heat (ii) H 3 O + COOH COOH

Synthetic Applications and Strategies The influence of substituents on electrophilic aromatic substitution reactions requires special attention to the order in which they are introduced into a benzene ring in the syntheses of substituted benzenes. Example: The nitration and bromination of benzene. HNO 3 H 2 SO 4 NO 2 Br 2 Fe Br NO 2 Br Br 2 Fe HNO 3 H 2 SO 4 Br + NO 2 Br NO 2 m-bromonitrobenzene ortho para 38% 62%

Modification of Amino and Hydroxyl Groups by Acetylation These groups are highly activating in electrophilic aromatic substitution reactions: NH 2 aniline Br 2 aqueous solution NH 2 Br Br Br 2,,4,6-tribromoaniline It is difficult to limit this reaction to monobromination.

Controlled Monobromination by way of Acetanilide NH 2 aniline (highly reactive) CH 3 COCCH 3 O = O acetylation NHCCH 3 O acetanilide (moderate reactivity) Br 2 acetic acid NHCCH 3 O NHCCH 3 O + Br Br (i) H 3 O + heat (ii) HO - (i) H 3 O + heat (ii) HO - hydrolysis NH 2 NH 2 Br Br o-bromoaniline p-bromoaniline Because of the interaction between the nonbonding electron pair on N and the carbonyl group, the acetamido group is less activating. -NHCCH 3 :O: : -NH=CCH 3 :O: - +

Moderating Reactivity through Synthetic Modification Acetylation of Phenols and Anilines Both phenols (Ar- OH ) and anilines (Ar- NH 2 ) are extremely reactive in most electrophilic aromatic substitution reactions. Sometimes it is necessary to reduce this reactivity by synthetic modification of the substituent groups. :OH
