Since kinetic studiees of the thermal decarboxylation of cyclobutani-1,1-dicarboxylic acid and cyclopropane=1,1=dicarboxylic acid has been performed for the molten solids and for solutions in various liquid solvents, these acids were chosen in this work to study therman reactions in solid ionic media. Each acid was ground and mixed with powdered potassium bromides, pressed into a pellet, heated for various periods of time, and the amount of reaction of the acid followed by means of changes in its infrared spectrum.
