Nitryl chloride is produced as a byproduct. Attempts to produce this compound by the reaction dinitrogen tetroxide and niobium pentachloride under acetonitrile resulted in the formation of the acetonitrile niobium dioxide dinitrate complex. This compound reacts with water to form niobium pentoxide and decomposes at 65 °C.
