For this problem, we have to draw the mechanism if the formation of 5-iodosalicylamide from salicylamide and NaI/NaOCl:
Draw a mechanism that supports the formation of the particular regiochemistry that you observe for your product (5-iodosalicylamide is the product ((i.e. Iodine attached at the meta position)), salicylamide is the starting material, NaI is the source of iodine, NaOCl is the oxidizing agent, and ethanol is the solvent). Be sure to include any important intermediates and resonance structures.
