The reaction in the gas phase of active nitrogen produced by 245OMc microwave-supported glow discharge with two types of organic substrate was investigated. One part of the research involved the reaction with conjugated dienes. The major aspect of this part was devoted to determination of the dependence of yields of seventeen different products as a function of the reaction parameters, ratio of reactants, total pressure, concentration of reactants and rate of linear transport. Kinetic analysis of these data provided insight into the mechanism of action of active nitrogen. The products of reaction of active nitrogen with isoprene under a single set of conditions were also investigated. The second part of the research involved investigation of the reaction of 14C-labelled propylene with active nitrogen. Attention was directed to the activity present in propylene recovered after reaction with a large excess of active nitrogen. Both total activity and the activity at C-1 were determined.
