Permercuration of sodium benzoate, nitrobenzene, benzamide, and benzene, and pentamercuration of benzene have been achieved by heating the appropriate arenes or monomercurated arenes with mercuric trifluoroacetate, while anisic acid gave permercurated anisole; the products react with tribromide ions to give the corresponding polybromobenzenes.
