Abstract:

Earlier research on the gamma-radiolysis of tertiary aromatic amines such as NN-dimethylaniline has been extended to amines in which beta hydrogen is present e.g. l-phenylpyrrolidine, 1-phenylpiperidine and NN-diethylaniline. Unlike the N-methyl compounds, these latter yield dimeric products which are not formed by simple radical coupline. The action of t-butoxy radicals on tertiary aromatic amines sometimes leads to the same products as does gamma-radiolysis. However, the action of t-butoxy radicals on NN-dimethylaniline in chlorobenzene is complicated. Research on the formation of quinoline derivatives by radiolysis of NN-dimethylaniline in the presence of N-phenylmaleimide has been extended by the use of diethyl maleate in place of N-phenylmaleimide.
