Nitrogen-15 and carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectra have been taken of a number of diazo, benzenediazonium, and azido compounds. The ^(13)C chemical shifts of C1 of these substances are at rather high fields (23-112 ppm for diazo compounds compared to 155-185 ppm for imines, and 102-123 ppm for diazonium salts compared to 148 ppm for nitrobenzene) and do not seem explicable in terms of high charge densities on these carbons. The ^(15)N resonances of diazomethane shift downfield when phenyl groups are substituted on carbon and upfield when the carbon is incorporated as C5 of a cyclopentadiene ring. Substitution of electron-donating and electron-attracting groups in the 4 position of benzenediazonium salts shifts the ^(15)N resonances downfield and upfield, respectively.
