Abstract Isobutyric acid in the presence of cyanuric chloride and N‐methylmorpholine was converted into active ester 3 at 0–5 °C, and it was subsequently treated with 3‐aminobenzotrifluoride 4 at 25 °C to furnish corresponding amide 5. This amide finally, on nitration, produced the desired product flutamide, 2‐methyl‐N‐[4‐nitro‐3‐(trifluoromethyl)phenyl]propionamide 6 in good yield. By‐product 2,4,6‐trihydroxy‐1,3,5‐triazine 7 was converted into the useful starting material cyanuric chloride 1…

Solvent-free reduction of carboxylic acids to alcohols with NaBH4 promoted by 2,4,6-trichloro-1,3,5-triazine and PPh3 in the presence of K2CO3
A simple, rapid, and eco-friendly method for NaBH4 reduction of carboxylic acids to alcohols under solvent-free conditions was developed using a combination of 2,4,6-trichloro-1,3,5-triazine (TCT)
Synthesis of C-13-labeled atrazine.
This study presents three steps for the synthesis of [( 13) C3 ]atrazine, which starts from [(13) C]urea, and results in the incorporation of C-13 atoms at the 1, 3 and 5 positions of the S-triazine ring of atrazine.

2-Chloro-4,6-dimethoxy-1,3,5-triazine: A New Effective and Convenient Coupling Reagent for Cephalosporin Derivatives
Abstract Chloro-4,6-dimethoxy-1,3,5-triazine(CDMT) 2 was reacted with 2-(2-amino-4-thiazolyl)-2-syn-alkoxyiminoacetic acid 1 to give an active ester intermediate 3.
6-Phenyl-5-(N 4 -aroyl-N 1 -piperazinyl)-2H-pyridazin-3-ones were obtained by nucleophilic substitution of the chlorine atom of 6-phenyl-5-chloro-2H-pyridazin-3-one or alternatively, by aroylation of
New practical synthesis of prazosin
A new four step synthesis of prazosin, 2-[4-(2-furoyl)piperazin-l-yl]-4-amino-6,7-dimethoxyquinazoline, has been described. The method is also adaptable for the preparation of other substituted
An efficient route to alkyl chlorides from alcohols using the complex TCT/DMF.
[reaction: see text] Efficient conversion of alcohols and beta-amino alcohols to the corresponding chlorides (and bromides) can be carried out at room temperature in methylene chloride, using
A very mild and chemoselective oxidation of alcohols to carbonyl compounds.
Aliphatic, benzylic, and allylic alcohols, and beta-amino alcohols are rapidly oxidized without no overoxidation to carboxylic acids, and secondary carbinols are slowly oxidized so that the reaction is highly chemoselective.
