Acyl iodides RCOI (R = Me, Ph) reacted with N,N-dimethylformamide and N,N-dimethylacetamide Me2NC(=O)R’ (R’ = H, Me) along two concurrent pathways involving transacylation and cleavage of the Me-N bond. The first pathway leads to the formation of acyl group exchange products, and the second, to the corresponding imides R’CON(Me)COR.
