  1. Thanks for the advice!
  2. I want to synthesize methyl 3,5-dibromobenzoate (3,5-dibromobenzoic acid methyl ester). This can be synthesized from the corresponding benzoic acid, ester, or aldehyde, which are all meta- directing. However, they strongly deactivate the benzene ring and make bromination difficult. Even if the first bromination is achievable, i cannot find any papers on how to do the second one. I don't have access to an already bromo- substituted benzene compound. Is there an easier synthetic route? I am struggling in finding any papers for reference. I am very new to Organic Chemistry and although it seems like an easy target I still find it extremely difficult.
