Ring Substitution reactions of Aromatic acids.

No comments

In case of aromatic acids the “COOH” group being electron withdrawing in nature , decreases the electron density on the ring.

the meta position is least affected by the electron withdrawing group and thus the electron density is higher than other resonating structures.

thus the substitution reactions give meta products.
