Abstract : Results of research accomplishments are summarized in this final report. Earlier studies had indicated that the oxidizing (chlorine) potential of organochlorinating agents differed markedly from one to another. The first half of the work was concerned with the chemistry of N-chlorosaccharin, a very potent organohalogenating agent, in aqueous solution, particularly as to its stability property. It was shown that in water the chloroimide apparently hydrolyzes rapidly to yield eventually chloroamine species. The second half of the work was related to the chemistry of interactions of N-chlorosuccinimide with secondary and tertiary amines in nonaqueous systems. The mechanism of reaction with dialkylamines appears to be relatively simple but that with tertiary amines, as in water, seems to be quite complex. (Author)
