Abstract

A novel and safe method for nitration of phenols, anilines and other aromatic compounds has been
found to be feasible with alumina sulfuric acid (ASA) as catalyst and Mg (NO3)2.6H2O as nitrating agent in
neat water as solvent. The use of water makes this method compatible with the green chemistry approach
