Abstract

Mass spectrometry was used to study the thermolysis of 2-(p-azidocinnamoyl)quinoline and 4-azidochalcone at 160–230‡C. The primary thermolysis product of these azides is a nitrene. The reaction of this nitrene in the singlet state gives polymer products, while the triplet nitrene is reduced in the molten azide to give a primary amine and dimerized to give an azo compound.
