    • Abstract


      Mercury compounds of succinimide and pthalimide have been obtained easily and in a pure condition by treating the respective imides with mercuric acetate in alcoholic solution. Carbamide (urea) forms two compounds when it reacts with mercuric acetate in different proportions: (I) Mercury carbamide and (2) Di-acetoxymercuri carbamide. The preparation of mercury acetamide is best effected only through the use of mercuric oxide. When mercuric acetate in alcoholic solution is employed, acetoxymercuri acetamide is formed.
