The flash vacuum pyrolysis of α-toluenesulfonyl azide (1) gave bibenzyl (2) , 2-(β-phenethyl)pyridine (3), and 2,1-benzisothiazole 2,2-dioxide (4); an authentic sample of the latter was prepared from 2-bromo-α-toluenesulfonamide and potassium amide in liquid ammonia. FVP of benzeneaulfonyl azide using benzene as carrier gas gave some diphenylamine, but not in the absence of benzene.
