Explosion risk by heating undiluted material.

Dehydrogenating agent and aza-dienophile. Oxidizes alcohols to aldehydes, thiols to disulfides and hydrazo to azo groups: J. Am. Chem. Soc., 88, 2328 (1966). Arylhydroxylamines are converted in high yield to nitroso compounds: Chem. Commun., 199 (1967).

Undergoes pericyclic reactions with alkenes and dienes via both ene and Diels-Alder processes. For further details and references, see: Encyclopedia of Reagents for Organic Synthesis, L. A. Paquette, Ed., Wiley, Chichester (1995), vol. 3, p. 1790.

Secondary and tertiary amines have been dealkylated by reaction with DEAD under mild conditions, followed by acid hydrolysis: J. Org. Chem., 38, 1652 (1973).

In combination with Triphenyl­phosphine, L02502, is widely used in the Mitsunobu reaction for activation of primary and secondary alcohols by formation of the alkoxyphosphonium salts, which behave as versatile alkylating agents under mild SN2 conditions: reactions normally proceed with inversion of configuration.

ɑ-Amination of aldehydes can be effected in the presence of L-proline as an enantioselective catalyst, affording chiral ɑ-amino alcohols and ɑ-amino acids with good ee: Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 41, 1790 (2002); for a similar reaction with scheme, see Dibenzyl­ azodicarboxyl­ate, L19347.
