Abstract:

The addition of hydride from octahydrotriborate ion to 1-substituted-2,4,6-trinitrobenzenes affords a stable C3-hydride Meisenheimer adduct. Concurrent with this addition reaction, is hydride displacement of the C1-substituent to form 1,3,5-trinitrobenzene. Under the reaction conditions, 1,3,5-trinitrobenzene is reduced to a mono-hydride Meisenheimer adduct. Hydride displacement at Cl is favored by substituents which can coordinate with the developing B3H7 moiety in the transition state. Author
