The team which rises the electron density at ortho and also para positions are dubbed as ortho-para directors,

Example:

-OH. -NH2 -NHR. -OCH3 , -CH3 , -C2H5 etc.

You are watching: Is oh an ortho para director

Let us take into consideration the directive influence of phenolic group. Phenol is the resonance hybrid the the adhering to structures:

*

In these resonance structures, the an unfavorable charge residue in the present at orilio and para positions of the ring structure. H is quite noticeable that the lone pair of electron on the atom i m sorry is fastened lo the ring is connected in resonance and also it renders the ring much more electron affluent than benzene.

The electron thickness at oriho and para position rises as compared to the meta position. Because of this phenolic group activates the benzene ring because that electrophilic assault at oriho and also para positions. Therefore 01-1 group is an orilio para director and also activator
