    I have a nitrobenzene ring which I need to add two substituents...COOCH3 in the meta (#4) position and Iodine in the "other" meta position (#6) (the second Carbon after the ester). The nitro group needs to be taken off as well. I can't seem to find any reference materials on what reagrents can be used. Can you please advise?
