Ortho-nitro-phenylacetic was synthesized, diazotized, and subjected to thermal and photochemical decomposition. Indazole is formed when the diazonium chloride salt was thermally decomposed in water. When carbon tetrachloride was used as a solvent, a lactone-like product was formed. When an excess of pyridine in carbon tetrachloride was used no decomposition took place. Photochemical decompositions using a mercury vapor lamp resulted in a combination. of products when methanol was used as solvent and indazole when water was the solvent.
