    Abstract: In this paper we want to present together our theoretical findings on aromatic nitration, involving both homocyclic and heterocyclic compounds. Our theoretical proposals have been introduced in recent years via several research communications. These theories convey new concepts in Organic Chemistry, such as Electric Hindrance, Autogenic Electromeri... Show More
