A number of nitro- and bromonitronicotines have been synthesized by the oxidation of the corresponding aminonicotines with Caro's acid. A nitro group in the α position of the pyridine ring of a nitronicotine is capable of being replaced by an ethoxy group under the action of sodium ethoxide, but in this process the reduction of the nitro group is also observed. The halogen in the bromonitronicotines readily undergoes nucleophilic replacement by a phenylthio group under the action of sodium thiophenoxide.
