Abstract:

Research is being conducted on the following projects 1 survey of the reactions of 3,5dibromobenzene-1,4-diazooxide I 2 study of further substituted diazooxides 3 the in situ preparation and decomposition of diazooxides and 4 a search for other aromatic diazocompounds whose decomposition may proceed similarly. An analysis is being made of the orientation of attack in 2- and 4-chloro-3,5-dibromo4-hydroxybiphenyl. Attempts were made to synthesize diazooxides in which first one and then both of the Br atoms in I were replaced by phenyl. Efforts were unsuccessful in the preparation of a diazo-compound which was sufficiently stable to be isolated in good yield from the corresponding diazonium salt and yet sufficiently unstable to decompose thermally in appropriate solvents at moderate temperatures. In project 4, a search is being made for acidic groups to occupy the position para to the diazonium function.
