After the investigation of Smushkevich-Usorov reaction application to the carboxylic acids amides, it was found that no reaction occurs. New conditions for this transformation was found. It was shown that after treating carboxylic acids amides with mixture of sodium nitrite and trifluoroacetic anhydride in dimethylformamide under cooling produces the mixture of two nitriles: one is the product of dehydratation of the starting amide and the other is the product of carbon chain degradation with one carbon atom loss.
