EAS:Halogenation Mechanism Practice Problems
The bromination of anisole occurs without the presence of a Lewis acid catalyst and often leads to the formation of tribromide with the presence of excess bromine. Explain why.
Will bromination occur at the ortho, para, or meta position with respect to the pyrimidinium ion in the reaction below? Explain.
A substitution reaction where hydrogen (H) is replaced with chlorine (Cl) is shown below. What ratio of products A, B, and C would you anticipate, given a random statistical distribution and no knowledge of the mechanism of the reaction?
What is the major product when toluene reacts (only one time) with iodine in presence of catalytic HNO3?
Identify the major product formed in the reaction between toluene and chlorine in the presence of FeCl3.
