Statement: When nitrobenzene is treated Br2 in presence of FeBr3 the major product formed is m-bromonitrobenzene.
Reason: Easier loss of H+ to region aromaticity from the meta position than from ortho and para position.
2. Most stable carbonium ion is:
3. State true or false
Toluene reacts with bromine in the presence of light to give benzyl bromine while in presence of FeBr3 it gives p-bromotoluene.
4. Give the steps to carry out the tranformation
Ethylbenzene to benzene.
