Abstract : A study was made of the acid splitting of diphenyl mercury in dimethylformamide under the action of various acid agents and the absence of any connection between the rate of protodemercuration and the strength of the applied acid was shown. It was demonstrated that the protolysis of diphenyl mercury is subject to nucleophilic catalysis by halide ions, and a mechanism is proposed for this reaction which involves participation of a complex of halide ion with diphenyl mercury and an ion pair of the acid agent. The influence of substituents in this reaction is determined by elecyrophilic attack with respect to the carbon atom. The applicability of the Yukawa-Tsuno equation for the given reaction series was demonstrated. (Author)
