 Nucleophilic aromatic substitution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A nucleophilic substitution is a substitution reaction in organic chemistry in which the nucleophile displaces a good leaving group, such as a halide on an aromatic ring.
Since the nitro group is a deactivator towards nucleophilic substitution, and a meta director, they allow the benzene carbon to which they are bonded to have a negative charge.
The nucleophilic substitution reactions in organic chemistry are nucleophilic aliphatic substitution including SN1 reactions, SN2 reactions and SNi reactions, nucleophilic aromatic substitution and nucleophilic acyl substitution.

 Nucleophilic Substitution
These reactions are known as Nucleophilic Substitution Reactions, substitution reactions because one atom or group has been substituted for another, and nucleophilic because the substituting atom or group has supplied the electrons for the new bond.
There is roughly a half bond between the nucleophile and the carbon and a half bond between the carbon and the halogen.
Notice that the nucleophile is bringing its bond-forming electrons into the transition state on the side of the carbon opposite to the position of the leaving group.

 Nucleophilic Substitution of Alkyl Halides
Nucleophilic substitution is a reaction in which an incoming nucleophile substitutues (replaces) an outgoing leaving group.
Nucleophiles have lone pairs of electrons and may carry a negative charge.
The main factors that govern the pathway for this reaction are the steric hinderence of the alkyl halide and the stability of the carbocation intermediate.

Nucleophilic substitution will be explored in much more detail in chapter 8.
In the reactions of alcohols with HX, the reactivity trend of HI > HBr > HCl > HF is not due to the nucleophilicity of the halide ion but the acidity of HX which is involved in generating the leaving group prior to the rate determining step.

The lack of any correlation between the concentration or the identity of the nucleophile and the rate of substitution led chemists to postulate a 2-step process in which the first step involved ionization of the bond between the reaction center and the leaving group.
In the second transition state the bond between the nucleophile and the reaction center is partially formed; the charge on the carbon atom is diminishing from +1 towards 0, while the charge on the hydroxide ion is changing from -1 towards 0.
In reaction 4, the carboxylate anion is thought to act like an internal nucleophile, assisting the departure of the leaving group by coordinating to the back side of the C-Br bond and blocking access of the nucleophile to that side of the molecule.

 Alkyl Halide Reactivity
2 mechanism are inversion at the alpha-carbon, increased reactivity with increasing nucleophilicity of the nucleophilic reagent and steric hindrance to rear-side bonding, especially in tertiary and neopentyl halides.
Second, since nucleophiles only participate in the fast second step, their relative molar concentrations rather than their nucleophilicities should be the primary product-determining factor.
For many combinations of alkyl halides and nucleophiles, elimination reactions may compete with substitution, or even be the predominant reaction path.

The sulfonyl group is attacked by the nucleophilic carbonyl oxygen, which causes the carbonyl carbon to be electron poor.
Likewise, SN reactions are said to be a concerted mechanism, despite cases where the nucleophile must be neutralized with a work-up step (amines substituting for a halide are a great example).
Hence, whether a carbonyl substitution reaction is carried out in acid (making the carbonyl more electrophilic) or base (making the nucleophile more nucleophilic), the number of key steps is still two: (1) formation of the tetrahedral intermediate following attack by the nucleophile and (2) the loss of the leaving group.

A leaving group is any atom or polyatomic group that is replaced by a nucleophile during a nucleophilic aliphatic substitution reaction.
In most nucleophilic aliphatic substitution reactions, the value of the equilibrium constant is very large, i.e.
It all depends on your perspective; the reagent that acts as a nucleophile in the forward direction assumes the role of a leaving group in the reverse direction.

Last time we saw an overview of the nucleophilic substitution mechanisms of alkyl halides.
One outcome of this is that the carbocation intermediate "lives" long enough for a nucleophile to approach it on either face of the molecule.
When the nucleophile is also the solvent, the reaction is called "solvolysis." Solvents like water and alcohols are particularly useful here, because they provide both a nucleophilic pair of electrons on the oxygen atom of the OH group and a fairly polar solvent which helps to stabilize the strongly polar transition state.

the nucleophilic acyl substitution reactions have a lot in common with nucleophilic addition reactions to carbonyls.
the major difference between the two reaction types is that the carbonyl group is regenerated in nucleophilic acyl substitution with the loss of a leaving group.
In the first step of each (regardless of the catalysis, this is the first major step), a nucleophile attacks the carbonyl carbon pushing electrons up onto the carbonyl oxygen generating a tetrahedral carbonyladdition intermediate.

 Nucleophilic Aromatic Substitution
Reaction is favoured by electron withdrawing substituents on the ring in order to decrease p–electron density and facilitate approach of a nucleophile.
This is due to fluorine being more inductively electron withdrawing than iodine, reducing electron density on the aromatic ring and enhancing the rate of nucleophilic attack.
This effect permits regioselective substitution with substrates possessing two identical leaving groups situated at different sites relative to the activating groups.
