Regioselective nitration of 3-fluoro-2-substituted benzoic acids

Hurth, Konstanze, Jacquier, Sebastien, Lehmann, Hansjoerg and Wilcken, Rainer (2015) Regioselective nitration of 3-fluoro-2-substituted benzoic acids. Tetrahedron Letters.


The preparation of a series of 3-fluoro-2-substituted-6-nitro benzoic acids is described. The partially excellent regioselectivities observed in the nitration step can be rationalized in most cases using Fukui indices of local nucleophilicity.
