It yields a nitroso derivative, is nitrated by nitric acid to dilituric acid and brominated by bromine.
It is readily brominated and nitrated; when the nitration is carried out in the presence of sulphuric acid, the nitro-groups take up the meta position with regard to the amino-groups.
In practice this usually occurs; for example, on further bromination, a-bromonaphthalene yields a mixture of the (i.4) and (1.5) dibromonaphthalenes; and when nitronaphthalene is either brominated, or nitrated or sulphonated, the action is practically confined to the second ring.
In order to synthesize alizarin, they converted anthracene into anthraquinone and then brominated the quinone.
Sony also has specific phase out plans for PVC and has eliminated brominated flame retardants in some products.
