Abstract : A new technique for the synthesis of chemical compounds was developed. Pure nitrobenzene was synthesized by bombarding the benzene molecule with a beam of NO2(+) ions under carefully controlled conditions. Ortho, meta and para nitrotoluene were also prepared by the reaction of toluene with NO2(+) ions. The apparatus used consists of an ion source capable of providing a lowenergy (1 electron volt) high-current (1 milliampere) beam of selected ionic species; an electrostatic potential control or accelerator for extracting the current from the source and giving accurate ion energies on the order of one electron volt; a reaction vessel in which the ions interact with the target molecules to produce a chemical reaction; and a cold trap to collect the products of reaction.
