p-nitro acetanilide to p-nitro aniline
« on: November 09, 2006, 01:09:14 AM »
Hi there,

Can somebody show me the mechanism of p-nitro acetanilide forming p-nitro aniline by adding HCL + water and NH3 (ammonia, base)? It should be a hydrolysis reaction rite? please help.. thanks!

acid: H+ goes to the nitrogen, water to the carbonyl C -> split

base: OH- attacks the carbonyl C, H+ of water goes to the nitrogen -> split
Math and alcohol don't mix, so... please, don't drink and derive!
