© 2016 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim The stepwise decomposition of carbonyl diisocyanate, OC(NCO) 2 , has been studied by using IR spectroscopy in solid argon matrices at 16 K. Upon irradiation with an ArF laser ($łambda$=193 nm), carbonyl diisocyanate split off CO and furnished a new carbonyl nitrene, OCNC(O)N, in its triplet ground state. Two conformers of the nitrene, syn and anti, that were derived from the two conformers of OC(NCO) 2 (62 \% syn–syn and 38 \% syn–anti) were identified and characterized by combining IR spectroscopy and quantum chemical calculations. Subsequent irradiation with visible light ($łambda$ \textgreater 395 nm) caused the Curtius rearrangement of the nitrene into OCNNCO. In addition to the expected decomposition products, N 2 and CO, further photolysis of OCNNCO with the ArF laser yielded NOCN, through a diazomethanone (NNCO) intermediate. To further validate our proposed reaction mechanism, ArF-laser photolysis of the closely related NNNNCO and cyclo-N 2 CO in solid argon matrices were also studied. The observations of NOCN and in situ CO-trapped product OCNNCO provided indirect evidence to support the initial generation of NNCO as a common intermediate during the laser photolysis of OCNNCO, NNNNCO, and cyclo-N 2 CO.
