Nitrile-Imine -> 1H-Diazirine -> Carbodiimide

What is it about?

A very energetic and a very reactive antiaromatic 1H-Diazirine generated and its unique vibrational signature ("fingerprint") characterized.

Why is it important?

1H-diazirine is captured for the first time as a key intermediate in the photochemistry of nitrile imine
