# Directing Nitration

Chemistry Level 3

Benzene is added to a solution of $$\ce{Br2}$$ and $$\ce{Fe}$$. The major product is then added to a solution with an excess ($$\ce{Xs}$$) of $$\ce{HNO3}$$ and $$\ce{H2SO4}$$.

Determine the total number of major products formed after excess nitration.

Note: Be aware that some groups on a benzene are $$\text{ortho/para}$$ directing while others direct $$\text{meta}$$.
