relaxation measurements .requires a knowledge of the
equilibrium constants K , . However, the microscopic constants can be determined by combination of potentiometric
and spectrophotometric titrations"] only under the limiting
assumption that the absorption by the deprotonated thiol
group is independent of the prevailing degree of protonation
of the amino group. This assumption can be tested by
kinetic methods if the reaction volume AV(=V,-V,) is
known and provided that it can be decided upon which
side the equilibrium lies. It is then possible to determine
K = FB/Fc =y/( 1 -y) unambiguously by measuring the
maximal sound absorption amplitude

Such a compound (R=C6HlI; R'=CH,, M=Au, n = l )
is formed (as trimer) when methanolic potassium hydroxide
solution (157 mg/l8.9 ml) and then, with stirring, cyclohexyl isocyanide (305 mg) are added to a suspension of
chloro(triphenylphosphane)gold(rfin methanol. After 0.5 h
the suspension is concentrated to half volume in a waterpump vacuum. The white precipitate is recrystallized from
chloroform/methanol (m. p.
190°C with gradual decomposition and violet coloration above 160°C).
However, it can be shown that for the systems studied, the
intramolecular proton exchange between neighboring
groups is faster by two or three orders of:magnitude than
the protolysis (or hydrolysis) reactionsr7](see Table) :

B + H+=A+C+H+
or B $ D + H + e C [ 7 ]
The 'H-NMR spectrum, in CDCl,, measured from T = - 10
to 30 ppm, contains only signals that can be assigned to
the cyclohexyl ( ~ ~ 5 and

These findings and the position of the -C=Nvibration indicate a formula of type (I).
This means that the direct proton exchange between the
two functional groups with interchange'of hydrogen bonds
can occur appreciably more easily than the corresponding
reactions of the free protons or hydroxide ions.
These results are of particular interest for enzyme reactions
in which mutually reacting groups are brought into close
contact by rapid structural interchanges
s). They
show that the individual steps of intramolecular proton
transfer are as fast as, or faster than, the structural changes.

No organometallic compound corresponding to the general
formula [R-N=C( OR')-],M

y-Cyano-a-isocyanoalkanoic esters (6) deserve attention
because they have several reactive centers and can react in
many ways, e.g. by hydrolysis of the isocyano group to
yield a-amino-y-cyanoalkanoates. They are obtained by

Bis adducts of type (7) can be formed from isocyanoacetic
esters ( I ) because the anions from compounds (6) can
react further with acrylonitrile (5) when R'=H. In
experiments to date, acrylonitrile (5) (Rz=R3= H) and
methacrylonitrile ( 5 ) (R2= H, R3= CH,) afford only
the bis adducts-even when an excess of isocyanoacetic
ester is used-whereas, for example, crotononitrile and
cinnamonitrile give monoadducts of type (6) as isolable

A solution (1 ml) of sodium ethoxide (prepared from 5 g of
sodium in 100 ml of anhydrous ethanol) was added to one of
ethyl isocyanoacetate"' (11.3 g, 0.1 mol) in anhydrous

Considerable importance attaches to the finding that when
the 1,3-diamides ( 3 ) are heated with an excess of an amine
R3R4NH for 3-20 min with or without a solvent at
150-200°C the amino groups are exchanged, giving ( 5 ) .
The reaction is smooth if the entering amine is more strongly
basic (nucleophilic)than the leaving amine. This method is
an advantageous extension of the usual method of heating
a squaric acid salt with the amine"] and makes aliphatic
1,3-diamides, e . g . (Sd) and (Sf), accessible without the
difficulties previously described for the case of (5d)[le1

New Routes to Squaric 1,3-Diarnides

Squaric acid (2a) reacts with amines, when heated in
alcohols or DMF, to give 1,3-diamides (3)['],but 1,2diamides (I)['] are formed from squaric esters, e.g. ( 2 b ) .
This rule is broken by feebly reactive amines. Only the
1,3-diamide (3) (R' =o-NO,C,H,,
