1. Why is p-nitroaniline soluble in acidsolution? Write the reaction.
2. Why is 2–naphthol soluble in basesolution. Write the reaction.
p-nitroaniline (1-amino-4-nitrobenzene) is a base; therefore, it is soluble in acid. The basic group is the amino group. When it reacts with an acid, the amino group gets …
