Electrophilic Substitution Reaction
in Aromatic Ethers

«Previous Next »

The presence of alkoxy group (−OR) in aromatic ethers activates the aromatic ring towards electrophilic substitution reaction in the same way as in phenol.

We have already discussed some electrophilic substitution reactions like halogenation, nitration, Friedel-Crafts reactions in electrophilic substitution reactions in haloarenes . Hence, the reactions are given below without any explanation.

Halogenation in Anisole

Electrophilic substitution in ether : halogenation in ether

Nitration in Anisole

Electrophilic substitution in ether : nitration in ether

Friedel-Crafts Alkylation

Electrophilic substitution in ether : Friedel-Crafts alkylation

Friedel-Crafts Acylation

Electrophilic substitution in ether : Friedel-Crafts acylation
