Formation of Diazonium Salt – Diazotization


Click the structures and reaction arrows in sequence to view the 3D models and animations respectively

Reaction of amine with the nitrosonium ion gives a diazonium salt. The diazonium salt is usually made in situ since it is usually unstable. If the alkyl group is replaced with an aryl group, the salt is stable at 0 oC and reacts with various nucleophiles.

The diazonium salt is used in Tiffeneau-Demjanov rearrangements.
