the ratelimiting step is attack of E on the aromatic ring to form a resonancestabilized cation intermediate The more stable this cation intermediate the faster the rate limiting step and the faster

of Toluene Interpretation 0 The ratedetermining intermediates for ortho and para nitration each have a resonance form that is a tertiary carbocation All of the resonance forms for the ratedetennining intermediate in meta nitration are secondary carbocations Tertiary carbocations being more stable are formed faster than secondary ones Therefore the intermediates for attack at the ortho and para positions are formed faster than the intermediate for attack at the meta position This explains why the major products are 0 and pnitrotoluene Chemistry 318N WT Nitration of Toluene Partial Rate Factors 0 The experimentally determined reaction rate can be combined with the orthometapara distribution to give partial rate factors for substitution at the various ring positions 0 Expressed as a numerical value a partial rate factor tells you by how much the rate of substitution at a particular position is faster or slower than at a single position of benzene Chemimy 318N I 37
