The green nitrosobenzene monomer is reduced polarographically to phenylhydroxylamine in the pH range 4—9. Though this reduction is known to be a two-electron process, coulometry invariably gives a lower value of n because of the reaction of unreacted nitrosobenzene and the phenylhydroxylamine formed. The green monomer is attacked by mercury in acid medium. In alkaline medium, the green monomer undergoes a change that follows first-order kinetics with respect to nitrosobenzene. The rate of the transformation depends on the solvent. It decreases in the order acetone > ethanol > dioxan.
