The reactions of aliphatic nitroso compounds.
Stowe, John Palmer

This research was undertaken to test the action of various oxidizing agents on two typical aliphatic nitroso compounds, propyl pseudonitrole and N-nitrosodimethylamine. The oxidizing agents tested include benzoyl peroxide, acetyl peroxide, 30% hydrogen peroxide, urea peroxide, potassium ferricyanide, and nitric acid. To test the reaction with pseudonitrole it was necessary to dissolve that compound in various solvents including carbon tetrachloride, ethyl acetate, and glacial acetic acid. With the N-nitrosodimethylamine it was found possible to dissolve the peroxides in the amine itself. The N-nitroso compound was not tested with potassium ferricyanide or nitric acid. [TRUNCATED]
