A nitrogenous substance X is treated with HNO2 and the product so formed is further treated with NaOH solution, which produces blue colouration. Among the following which one has the highest cation to anion size ratio? The usual precursor to an aryl amine is the corresponding nitro compound. If you use hydrochloric acid, the solution will contain benzenediazonium chloride. It is removed in the last step. Amongst the compounds given, the one that would form a brilliant coloured dye on treatment with NaNO2 in dil.HCl followed by addition to an alkaline solution of β-naphthol is, Question 21. The compound formed is generally known as: 62.Aniline was acetylated. (a) Schiff’s base Aromatic iodination can only be accomplished directly on highly activated benzene compounds, such as aniline, or indirectly by way of a diazonium intermediate.
