Dimethylcarbamoyl azide has been photolyzed in the presence of methyl isocyanate to produce the cyclic aminimide 1,1,4-trimethyl-1,2,4-triazolidine-3,5-dione 1,2-ylide (6) and the azo compound N-(dimethylcarbamoyl)-N,N′,N′-trimethylazodicarboxamide (7). The azo compound 7 arises from a photolytic reaction between dimethylcarbamoyl azide and aminimide 6. Mechanistic studies support a reaction path involving intermolecular-assisted loss of nitrogen from the azide as a result of interaction with aminimide 6.
