This work was undertaken to search for preparative procedures for PAN, to study its structure and properties, and to elucidate more clearly the nature of its formation and decomposition. An ideal preparative procedure for PAN had been found, high yields of PAN have been obtained, and a satisfactory preparative g.l.c. technique has been adapted for its purification. The results of the synthetic studies tend to confirm prior conclusions, but the decomposition of PAN does not proceed entirely the way previously described. The results from this research indicate that the acyl and acylperoxy radicals are precursors to PAN in photochemical environments containing acyl derivatives, NOx, and oxygen. In contrast to prior investigations, however, several decomposition products of PAN have been found that were not previously reported, that is, hydrocarbons and oxygen have been found as products in the present study. Additional characterization data has been obtained that corroborate the structure established for PAN.
