1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data If i have 4 methyl phenyl amine and i add aqueous bromine. where will the bromine atom substitute. And would adding aqueous bromine to 3 methyl phenol have a different reaction/observation. 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution I think it will depend on which is a stronger activating group. the methyl or amine group. both organic compounds react similarly with bromine, with the same observations. Discharge of reddish brown colour + acidic fumes of HBr. the reaction is electrophilic substitution in both.
