Abstract

1-Nitroadamantane was produced by irradiating a solution of adamantane and NO2 in CCl4 with the visible lines (457.9-514.5 nm) of an argon-ion laser. At these wavelengths NO2 does not photodissociate to form O atoms, and thus the nitration reaction must be initiated by another species, probably vibronically excited NO2 (NO2 *†). The intensity of the laser enables the reaction to be carried out in a reasonable length of time, despite the strong quenching of NO2 *† by CCl4.
