Propose a mechanism for the sulfonation of pyridine, pointing out why sulfonation occurs at the 3-position.
Step 1 of 3
Here we have to propose a mechanism for the sulfonation of pyridine and have to define why sulfonation has been carried out at the 3rd position
The sulphonation of pyridine has been carried out in presence of fuming H2SO4 , HgSO4 in 230oC and forms pyridine-3-sulphonic acid.
