For this assignment, the target compound that you should synthesize is 1-methyl-4-nitro-benzene. This is an electrophilic aromatic substitution reaction. Examine the product carefully and determine the substitution pattern. Which group will already be present in the substrate? Keep in mind the mechanism and how that will control the selectivity of the process. Remember, you can easily separate ortho and para isomers.

Please write a discussion based on the data given.
