Electrophilic Aromatic Substitution

lectrophilic Aromatic Substitution(1) Nitration of Methyl Benzoate(2) Synthesis of 1,4-Di-t-butyl-2,5-dimethoxybenzene byFriedel-Crafts Alkylation of 1,4-DimethoxybenzenePurpose1)To carry out the nitration of methyl benzoate, and then identify the major product formed (position at which nitro-group substitution takes place) by thin-layer chromatography (TLC), the percent yield and the melting point range. 2)To synthesize 1,4-Di-t-butyl-2,5-dimethoxybenzene by Friedel-Crafts Alkylation of 1,4-Dimethoxybenzene, and then determine the percent yield and melting point range. Procedure*Please refer to the lab handout 6 and Macroscale and Microscale Organic Experiments (Williamson, 2003). * Part II of the experiment (Synthesis of 1,4-Di-t-butyl-2,5-dimethoxybenzene by Friedel-Crafts Alkylation of 1,4-Dimethoxybenzene) was carried out by Ashley and me.
