Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the products are meta,para and ortho aniline....because the nitration of aniline involves anilinium ion which is meta directing

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In nitration you add two concentrated acids: HNO3 and H2SO4 both strong acids. Always the acid base neutralization reactions are fastest. Even though NH2 group in aniline is a weak base , its neutraliztion with a very strong acid is still faster than nitration. Hencee if you carry the acid base reaction(Basically a protonation of the N group), you would end up with an NH3+ group attached to benzene which is deactivating. Hence the meta substitution cannot be ruled out here and you would get all products ortho, meta and para.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There's no clear major. I'm not too sure of the percentages but i think you get 40%para , 45% meta and 15% ortho.
