New method for the direct electrophilic amination of aromatic compounds and its use in the annelation of the pyrimidine ring

  • Published:
Chemistry of Heterocyclic Compounds Aims and scope

A method has been developed for the synthesis of aromatic amines by the amination of the corresponding aromatic compounds using sodium azide in PPA. A method for the synthesis of quinazolines and benzo[h]quinazolines using this reaction and the subsequent reaction of the intermediates with 1,3,5-triazines has been developed.
