Hello Scientists and the Like,
I'm a relatively new graduate student and I'm going to be synthesizing some isocyanide compounds for use as particle ligands. I've read that this organic group is labile to acid, which hydrates it to the corresponding formamide.
Does anyone have experience with just how stable these compounds are isolated or in aqueous (namely, basic aqueous) solutions? I'd appreciate any kind of background on the subject. Most subjects redirect me to isocyanates which are distinctly different for my purpose.
I'm new to the forum and would appreciate any and all direction I could get. THANKS.
