Conclusions

  1. 1.

    The reaction of benzene and naphthalene with an equimolar amount of cerium ammonium nitrate respectively gives nitrobenzene and 1-nitronaphthalene. Anthracene under similar conditions is converted to anthraquinone and 9-nitroanthracene (3∶1).

     
  2. 2.

    Nitrobenzene is oxidized by cerium ammonium nitrate to 1,3-dinitrobenzene, 1-nitronaphthalene is oxidized to 1,4-naphthoquinone, and 9-anthracene is oxidized to anthraquinone.
