Over a century ago it was known that a mixture of nitiric and sulphuric acids was a more effective nitrating agent than nitric acid alone (Muspratt and Hofmann). Since then the study of the nitration reaction has claimed attention not only for its chemical interest but also for its great technical importance. Nitration of aromatic compounds has been investigated in various solvents such as water, acetic acid, nitromethane, etc. as well as in concentrated sulphuric acid (i.e. acid of molar ratio H20/H2S04<1) and oleum, but up to the present little has been known about the reaction in sulphuric acid media of ratio H20/H2S04>1 and the kinetic data in this region are limited to some heterogeneous experiments, difficult to interpret.
