Substitution experiments with the acetyl, formyl, and toluene-p-sulphonyl derivatives of 2-methoxy- and 2-ethoxy-1-naphthylamines show that, whereas chlorination and nitration proceed mainly, or even exclusively, in position 4, yet bromination may yield the 6-derivative as the main product. A comparison is made with the results of substitution experiments with 2:6-xylidine.
