The use of the amino group as a directing agent in the synthesis of many aryl compounds is a well known and often used process. Therefore a simple and efficient method of removing the amino group after it has served its purpose is to be desired. The purpose of this work has been to investigate the possibilitiy of deaminating using dilute solutions and isopropyl nitrite as a diazotizing agent. The method of reacting as well as the use of different reactants was studied.
