(a) A study of the kinetics of nitration of a fully deuterated nitrobenzene and a comparison with the nitration of protium nitrobenzene in order to determine the molecularity of the reaction. (b) An investigation of the causes of the maximum in sulphuric acid media with particular respect to the acid side of the maximum. The substances used for nitrating were:- nitrobenzene p-chloronitrobenzene trimethylphenylammonium ion. The investigation involved the addition to 100[percent] sulphuric acid of bases other than water, and salts and unionised compounds to ascertain whether these substances gave rise to a maximum rate at certain concentrations. Activation energies and A factors were measured in various media.
