Abstract:

REACTION OF NITROSYL CHLORIDE WITH ALIPHATIC PRIMARY AMINES nitrosyl chloride was reacted with butylamine, hexylamine, tert-butylamine, 1- phenylethylamine, tritylamine, benzhydrylamine, and with 9,10-dihydro-9,10- ethyleno-9-aminoanthracene. Diazomethane was not detected in the reaction of nitrosyl chloride with methylamine. A study of the reactivity of the triazenes led to the triazene method for the deamination of aliphatic amines. This method is outlined in an accompanying preprint. A reasonable mechanism was written to account for the general features of the reaction of nitrosyl chloride with aliphatic amines in non-polar solvents.
