The objective of this research was to investigate some typical reactions of the halogenated nitroparaffins. One problem was that of obtaining the three halogenated 2-nitroparaffins, 2-chloro-, 2-bromo-, and 2-iodo-2-nitropropane. 2-Chloro-2-nitropropane was commercially available; the others were prepared in the laboratory. A second problem was determining the relative ease of replacement of the halogen, either by a different halogen, or some other chemical group. The third problem was the suggestion of a mechanism to e)q)lain the reactions which were observed in the first two problems.
