A new route to complexed isocyanides—including those with strongly electronegative substituents which were previously inaccessible, e.g. CNCCl3—is seen in the accompanying reaction scheme. The aryl radical ArN N• or Ar• reacts with the solvent H R via H abstraction; the resulting R• combines with the radical cyano complex.
