Dissociation enthalpies of terminal (N–O) bonds, DH(N–O), in amine N-oxides, nitrile N-oxides, pyridine N-oxides, quinoxaline 1,4-dioxides, furoxans, nitrones, azoxy- derivatives, azo-N,N-dioxides, nitro compounds, nitramines, and alkyl nitrates are calcu- lated from published enthalpy of formation, enthalpy of sublimation, and enthalpy of vaporization data. For each class of organic compounds, the calculated DH(N–O) val- ues are critically evaluated. The derived DH(N–O) values can be used to estimate enthalpies of formation of other molecules in each of these classes of organic compounds.
