# Conversion practice 1

Just show the steps in the conversion! And you are done! And Remember.. This isnt a challenge... Or else It wouldnt have been so easy

Thanks

This discussion board is a place to discuss our Daily Challenges and the math and science related to those challenges. Explanations are more than just a solution — they should explain the steps and thinking strategies that you used to obtain the solution. Comments should further the discussion of math and science.

When posting on Brilliant:

• Use the emojis to react to an explanation, whether you're congratulating a job well done , or just really confused .
• Ask specific questions about the challenge or the steps in somebody's explanation. Well-posed questions can add a lot to the discussion, but posting "I don't understand!" doesn't help anyone.
• Try to contribute something new to the discussion, whether it is an extension, generalization or other idea related to the challenge.

Hey!!!

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Hey!!! Whats up? You dont come to Whatsapp :(....

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Hmmm....its been many days

- 3 years, 2 months ago

I want some help in physics and all :P like always ...

Hmm, Nice way, Mynes was a bit longer :P. First added $-COOH$ in the Ring. Then Nitration (2 eqv). Converted $-NH2$ to $-NO2$ and then to Diazonium Salt. Then CuCl ( 2eqv.) to make both of them Cl. Then added $\text{Red P, HI}$. Its all :P..

I know I am sillier than you. SO... silly method :(

- 3 years, 2 months ago

The method you've shown seems to work fine but I have some queries. 1. After the first nitration, the ring will be highly deactivated so the chances of a second nitration are very low. 2. How do you reduce -NO2 to -NH2 is also important. (Sn/Fe + HCl) works just fine, while reduction using hydrogen will reduce the carboxylic group as well. Rest of the reaction looks fine to me. :)

Sn/Fe+HCl obviously :P ... Learnt from Aryl Halides.

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Great! I see you've excelled in chemistry. I remember the days you said your chemistry is the worst.

- 3 years, 2 months ago

No... Not excelled :P... Yeah.. Nowadays.. Chemistry seems interesting and scoring too.. Realised that, One can score in chemistry the most.... So to qualify exams... I study it and now.. It seems quite interesting..... But still P>M>C :P...

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Great! I've made chemistry my pillars of hope. C>M>P now :P

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Yeah.. Same.. its obviously the pillars hope..... :D... And after JEE when you come back to Whatsapp, Please share ur number :D

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Yes of course! :)

- 3 years, 2 months ago

All the best for Advanced @Tapas Mazumdar!

- 3 years, 2 months ago

From me too @Tapas Mazumdar !!!! :D...

And thomas, Online aa :P

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Thanks. :D

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Thanks. Hope to acheive better result than mains. :)

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Oh btw, Whats ur rank in JEEM?

- 3 years, 2 months ago

7899 :/

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Ohkay. Not that Bad. You are getting NIT. Now prepare for JEE Adv. to the fullest! And dont take much pressure... You were a Bio student. You managed Bio also in 12th.... So Your rank is quite nice!! :D

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Bio student. Haha :P No I was purely PCM student. And yes would prepare my best now. Thanks! :D

- 3 years, 2 months ago

But didnt you had Bio in 12th?

This method does not seem correct to me because when you do chlorination once on the aromatic ring then chlorine attributes (even though weakly) to activate the aromatic ring. The next chlorination will then happen at ortho or para position with respect to the first chlorine added and not at the meta site of the -CHO group.

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Yeah... But why Isnt my correct?

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Oh yeah .....thanks @Tapas Mazumdar

- 3 years, 2 months ago

You're welcome. Btw you're also a very talented individual I must say. Both of you. You've practiced physics way better than I have. I still get baffled by some of your problems @Aaron Jerry Ninan

- 3 years, 2 months ago

Hi!

- 3 years, 2 months ago

TOP!!!

- 3 years, 2 months ago

True that!!!!

- 3 years, 2 months ago
