Which of the following reactions belong to electrophilic aromatic substitution?
A. Bromination of acetanilide
B. Coupling reaction of aryldiazonium salts
C. Diazotisation of aniline
D. Acylation of aniline
• Aniline reacts with bromine in presence water at room temperature to give a 2,4,6-tribromoaniline, bromination of aniline is an example of electrophillic substitution preferable to the ortho and para position (because these 2 positions of aniline are more electrophillic due to activated benzene ring of amino group)
acylation of aniline is also an example of electrophillic substitution reaction.
(ii) Coupling reaction of aryl diazonium salts (iii) Diazotisation of aniline are not electrophillic substitution reaction.

A colourless substance ‘A’ (C6H7N) is sparingly soluble in water and gives a water soluble compound ‘B’ on treating with mineral acid. On reacting with CHCl3 and alcoholic potash ‘A’ produces an obnoxious smell due to the formation of compound ‘C’. Reaction of ‘A’ with benzenesulphonyl chloride gives compound ‘D’ which is soluble in alkali. With NaNO2 and HCl, ‘A’ forms compound ‘E’ which reacts with phenol in alkaline medium to give an orange dye ‘F’. Identify compounds ‘A’ to ‘F’.Chemistry - Exemplar
