The structures of cyanogen and diacetylene have been previously investigated by the electron-diffraction method by Wierl,(1) who reported nonlinear models with 150° bond angles for both molecules. The improbability of this conclusion, which is incompatible with all other evidence for the angle between a triple and a single bond on the same carbon atom, led to a reinvestigation of these compounds by the electron-diffraction method.
