    Why do we use tin and hydrochloric acid for making aryl amine?
    Sodium nitrite and hydrochloric acid for benzenediazonium ion?

    Why not nitric acid or sulfuric acid?

    Thanks

    Nitric acid is an oxidising agent and to a lesser extent so is sulfuric acid.

    Also, both can substitute species onto benzene rings.Nitric acid can substitute NO2 groups onto an activated ring and sulfuric acid the SO2OH group
