Abstract: Nitrophenols can be obtained in moderate to high yields via nitrosationoxidation of phenols with silica sulfuric acid, NaNO2 and wet SiO2 at room temperature. In situ generation of HNO2 and a radical cation mechanism via the nitrous acid catalyzed (NAC) pathway appear to be applicable to phenol nitration using these reagents.
Keywords: Silica sulfuric acid; nitrosation-oxidation; nitration; nitrophenols
