Title: Regioselectivity of the nitration of phenol by acetyl nitrate adsorbed on silica gel
Author: Rodrigues, JAR

Abstract: The reaction of phenol with acetyl nitrate in chloroform gives nitrophenol with an ortho/para ratio of 1.8. This ratio increase to 13.3 when the reaction was carried out with acetyl nitrate pre-adsorbed on dry silica gel. Silica may be acting as a template to bring phenol close to acetyl nitrate by hydrogen bonds forming a ternary complex, which undergoes a six-center rearrangement to o-nitrophenol. The formation of this ternary complex is evaluated by ab initio molecular orbital calculation, (C) 1999 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
