Q. 17

What happens when

Answer :

A)When 2,4,6-trinitrochlorobenzene react with the warm water to give 2,4,6-trinitrophenol as a product.

The more the number of electron-withdrawing groups present at the ortho- and para- positions, the faster is the nucleophilic substitution reaction.

Thus, the reaction of 2,4,6-trinitrochlorobenzene with warm water gives 2,4,6-trinitrophenol.

The reaction involved is as follows:


According to Zaitsev rule, during elimination,the most substituted product will be the most stable, and therefore the most favored.

C) This following reaction is known as wurtz reaction
