Alkyl nitroaromatic compounds were readily prepared via nucleophilic aromatic substitution for hydrogen or a heteroatom by electrochemical oxidation of the a-complex. Butyllithium and butylmagnesium chloride were used as nucleophiles, and several nitrocompounds were tested to explore the possibilities of the NASH and NASX reactions promoted electrochemically.
