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.
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.
