We performed an electrophilic aromatic halogenation with bromine. The acetamidogroup acts as the director for this reaction, creating a para-oriented product. NMR is reviewed,and this experiment sets up for the second part of the experiment, wherein we will performrecrystallization.Experimental Procedure:The procedure was followed as described in Mayo’s manual pages 368-371, with the modifications listed in the “Modifications for Electrophilic Aromatic SubstitutionPart 1” provided on Canvas. No further modifications were made to the experiment.ReactionScheme:+→+AcetanilideBromine4-BromoacetanilideHydrogen BromideData and ResultsData and Results TableAcetanilideBr2-CH3CO2H sol’nCH3CO2H4-BromoacetanilideMol.
