Although NH2 is ortho & para directing ,nitration of aniline gives meta nitro aniline.

Asked by Shankar_K(student) , on 12/8/11

Answers

in aniline the NH2 group is basic in nature.when in reacts in the presence of acid, the aniline gets protonated. A -NH3+ group is deactivating and meta-directing when it comes to aromatic electrophillic substitutions, thus yielding m-nitroaniline.

hope this helps.
