D(NC-NO) has been determined by an electron impact method. The value obtained is 28.8 ± 2.5 kcal mol-1 (120.5 ± 11.5 kJ mol-1). This value is compared with those obtained for other nitroso-compounds and it is concluded that there is no simple relation between C-N bond dissociation energy and bond length in these compounds, the predominant contribution to the bond dissociation energy being the reorganisation energy in the liberated nitric oxide.
