Basicity order of aromatic amines and rearrangement reaction

Organic Chemistry Problems

The basicity of aromatic amines depends on the electron donation or electron withdrawing groups attached to the benzene ring, the more the number of electron donating group attached to the ring the more basic the compound will be. Nitration of toluene gives three products. The rearrangement products of reaction attached in the problem is shown clearly
