Why does bromination of aniline, even under very mild conditiongive 2,4,6-tribromoaniline instantaneoqsly.
Asked by BAKHORI AZAD | 10th Nov, 2010, 10:03: PM
Aniline is very active towards bromination, an electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction.
Because the NH2 group of aniline is electron donating, which makes the aromatic ring that it's attached to electron rich. This is a perfect environment for the addition of an electrophilic reagent like bromine.
We hope that clarifies your query.
