We have found that nitrosobenzenes spontaneously react with saturated hydrocarbons in the absence of oxygen and light. For interpretation of this general phenomenon a new reaction pathway has been assumed. In light of these results special care should be taken when applying nitrosobenzenes for inhibition and spin trapping as well as organic synthesis in saturated organic solvents, which are supposed to be inert.
