Question 11

Which of the following is an appropriate set of reactants for the preparation of 1-methoxy-4-nitrobenzene and why?

Answer

Set (ii) is an appropriate set of reactants for the preparation of 1-methoxy-4-nitrobenzene.

In set (i), sodium methoxide (CH3ONa) is a strong nucleophile as well as a strong base. Hence, an elimination reaction predominates over a substitution reaction.
