Ethylidene dl-iso-nitramine is formed bv the

interaction of C0(Et)2, or COEtMe, and NO, in
CjHjONa. The lead salt is anhydrous and
crystallises in cubes. The dimethyl ether
forms rhombic crystals, and melts at 75°.
The 8«o-nitramine itself is hydrolysed by
mineral acids into aoetaldelyde NHjOH and
oxides of N. With Na amalgam, is reduced to
hydrazine (Traube, Annalen, 300, 120). ,
