Series 1: playing of 3
Chlorobenzene is extremely less reactive towards a nucleophilic substitution reaction. Give two reasons for the same.
The presence of nitro group (−NO2) at o/p positions increases the reactivity of haloarenes towards nucleophilic substitution reactions.
Write chemical equation in support of your answer.
