Q 12.4 Arrange the following compounds in increasing order of their reactivity in nucleophilic addition reactions.
(ii) Benzaldehyde, p-Tolualdehyde, p-nitrobenzaldehyde, Acetophenone.
If +I effect is more its reactivity towards nucleophilic addition is less. and -I is more, more reactive toward addition.
So, according to this concept, increasing order of their reactivity in nucleophilic addition reactions-
Acetophenone < p-tolualdehyde < benzaldehyde <p-nitrobenzaldehyde
