Abstract : 1-Nitropyrrolidine upon irradiation with ultraviolet light is known to under-go photochemical decomposition. This investigation is concerned with the mechanism and products of the reaction. A potential intermediate was synthesized and found not detectable in the photochemical system. A product of the photolysis in alkane solutions was identified as an alkyl nitrate. Gas chromatographic analysis and a molecular orbital calculation provided information to suggest processes which might be occurring. (Author)
