    How does one predict the regiochemistry of the products of aromatic reactions like nitration? What factors are responsible for the product ratios seen in such reactions? What effects do the type of reagents used in such reactions have on product ratios? How does changing the steric bulkiness of the reagent affect the product ratios of regioisomers in aromatic reactions?
