It is shown that the sulphonic acid group outside the directing influences of the -OH and -COOH groups cannot be subtituted by the nitro group as in 3-, or 5-sulphosalicylic acids.
Thus on nitration of 4-sulphosalicylic acid, (I) 4-sulpho-5-nitro-salicylic acid, (II) 4-sulpho-3:5-dinitrosalicylic acid, and (III) 2:4:6-trinitrophenol-m-sulphonic acid were obtained.
