The decomposition of nitramide in 80% dimethyl sulfoxide-20% water solvent system

Abstract

The base-catalyzed decomposition of nitramide in 80% dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO)-20% water (by weight) has been investigated. The Brønsted catalysis law for a series of seven carboxylate ions in this mixed solvent is compared with the Brønsted relationship previously obtained in water. There is no real change in mechanism upon changing the solvent from pure water to this aqueous mixture, which is approximately equimolar in the two-solvent components.
