Abstract:

Nitrate and nitrite esters and nitro compounds are rapidly and quantitatively reduced by hydrazine in the presence of a platinum or palladium catalyst. Carbon-carbon and carbon-oxygen double bonds are not reduced. In the absence of the oxidizing agent hydrazine is absorbed but not decomposed by the catalyst. In the presence of a Raney nickel catalyst, but in the absence of an oxidizing agent, hydrazine is decomposed to hydrogen, nitrogen, and small amounts of ammonia. Author
