Abstract

If a colorimetric method is used for following the reactions by tracing the increase in dye concentration, only reactions which form soluble dyes can be studied. Gasometric techniques are limited in that a sample must be removed from the reaction vessel and the diazonium salt decomposed by means of a catalyst in order to measure the liberated nitrogen. The latter method of analysis lends itself more readily to studies of the rate of decomposition of diazonium salts under various conditions, such as, the presence of ultra-violet light or exposure to high temperatures.
