Several ω-cyano-2-bromoalkanes have been synthesized and their formolysis rates were determined. The reactivity of these compounds was found to decrease with a decrease in chain length and have a parallerism with a chemical shift (>CH–, –CH3) of NMR spectra. A similar sequence was observed in the reactivity of ω-cyano-1-bromoalkanes in the reaction with silver nitrate.
