Maybe we should add the name "iminomethylene" to the intro... Sikkema 11:51, 11 April 2007 (UTC)

Functional group ?[edit]

what is the IR spactroscopy value of ISONITRILE group

2120-2180 cm−1, according to this paper.

You should mention the carbenoid properties of the isonitrile.

There are many more convenient synteses of isonitriles employing gentler conditions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.220.17.130 (talk) 09:19, 18 February 2009 (UTC)

Isonitrile[edit]

May I suggest renaming the article to isonitrile to match the nitrile article. --kupirijo (talk) 02:13, 3 December 2010 (UTC)

Ferrocyanide and Ferricyanide[edit]

Note that Alkylation of Ferrocyanide also yields Alkyl Isonitriles like the Silver Cyanide subsection notes, the carbon is protected by the high disassociation constant of Ferrocyanides. Ferricyanide with lower Ferricyanide reacts under aqueous alkaline conditions (Ferric Hydroxide having a higher dissociation constant) with Carbonyls to yield alpha hydroxy acdids.
