The main object of this experiment is to provide a systematic approach to the reaction mechanism in the photolysis of 5-phenyl-1,2,3,4-tetrazole during which the formation of C-phenyl-nitrile-imine of 1.3-dipole was expected. So the occurrence of 1,3-dipole-addition was examined but not observed despite the formation of nitrile-imine. 3,6-diphenyl-1,2,4,5-tetrazine (IV); 3,6-diphenyl-1,4-dihydro-1,2,4,5-tetrazine (III); 3,5-diphenyl-1,2,4-triazole; 4-amino-3,5-diphenyl-1,2,4-triazole; benzonitrile; ammonia and nitrogen were isolated as final products of this reaction.
