Question

Which of the following is the most stable diazonium salt?


A
C6H5CH2N+2X

B
CH3N+2X

C
CH3CH2N+2X

D
C6H5N+2X

Solution

The correct option is D $$C_6H_5N_2^+X^-$$
Aliphatic amines do not give diazo compounds. The most stable diazonium salt is $$C_6H_5 N_2^+ X^-$$. Diazonium salt containing aryl group directly linked to the nitrogen atom is most stable due to resonance stabilization between the benzene nucleus and N-atom.
