Abstract:

Trisodium pentacyanoferrate TPF forms derivatives with hydrazine, methylhydrazine, and unsym-dimethylhydrazine. Each of these derivatives are similar in color and each of the derivatives have similar visible spectra. Separation of these derivatives by HPLC could offer a rapid analytical method of determining the composition of mixtures of the hydrazines. The photoreduction of Zn-tetraphenylporphyrin Zn-TPP with hydrazine, methylhydrazine, and unsym-dimethylhydrazine in pyridine was investigated. Results indicate that the presence of hydrazine in mixture with methylhydrazine, and unsym-dimethylhydrazine can be confirmed due to the formation of a unique color that is not produced when Zn-TPP is photoreduced with methylhydrazine, and unsym-dimethylhydrazine. Organometallic compounds more sensitive to reduction by hydrazine and porphyrin derivatives that may possibly form hydrazone derivatives with hydrazine are currently being investigated. Author
