[texhax] Nested macro definition problem

The attached simplified file test2.tex demonstrates de problem I am
having when defining nested macros.

Basically I need to define the macros:


in a LaTeX document, but pdflatex finds the following error:

  ! Illegal parameter number in definition of \ma.
  <to be read again> 
  l.5     \def\mc###1

Why pdflatex does not accepts this macro definition? How can I fix this
