- n. the nitroso derivative of benzene C6H5-NO; it is used to make azo compounds
Sorry, no etymologies found.
_Azo-benzene_, C_6H_5N: NC_6H_5, discovered by E. Mitscherlich in 1834, may be prepared by reducing nitrobenzene in alcoholic solution with zinc dust and caustic soda; by the condensation of nitrosobenzene with aniline in hot glacial acetic acid solution; or by the oxidation of aniline with sodium hypobromite.
The key to a "bottom-up" production of possibly the first heterometallic gallium-indium hydroxide nanocluster was the substitution of nitroso-butylamine as an additive in place of nitrosobenzene.
Demonstrating that process, the group showed that nitrobenzene reacts to form a surface-bound nitrosobenzene adduct.
