Redox Behavior Of Diazotized Amines In Aprotic Solvents
The redox behavior of diazotized aromatic and aliphatic amines is discussed. The half-wave potentials of their cathodic and/or anodic waves is correlated with their chemical reactivity. The effect of redox reactions on the stability of the nitrogen moiety of diazo compounds is elaborated. The lability of nitrogen in the resulting ion-radical species is suggested as a key to fixation of nitrogen via redox schemes.
