With styrene nitrogen trichloride forms l-chloro-2-phenyl-2-dichloroamino-ethane. When dry HCI is passed into a carbon tetrachloride solution of this compound l-chloro-2-phenyl-2-aminoethane and free chlorine are formed. Propene gives an analogous addition compound having similar properties. 2-Methyl propene and nitrogen trichloride react very rapidly to form ammonium chloride, nitrogen and chlorinated hydrocarbons. No stable addition product is formed in this reaction.
