Electrophilic aromatic subsitution
« on: October 11, 2020, 05:55:25 AM »
So, I’ve been trying to solve the following problem, but I’ve got absolutely no clue how. I need to complete the reactions with misssing reagents, reactants and products (It’s possible, that there is more than one step in the reaction).

Do you know about diazotation?
Can you convert a diazoniumsalt to, iodide? To hydroxy?

No, we have not talked about this yet. At first i thought I could get it through Hydroxymethylation, but i can only get a -C-OH from it...

Here is a link;
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diazonium_compound

You will need to reduce the nitro to amino (Fe/90%HOAc) then do diazotation.
You will need to nitrate the dimethylaniline first. (I think HNO3 is possible).
