the various units of the ring system being illustrated in the annexed formulae :
c c c C/\C C \/ N N 5f a-Triazines, /3-Triazines, Cyanidines.
Few simple derivatives of the o-series are known, those which have been prepared result by such reactions as the condensation of aminoguanidine or a similar type of compound (e.g. semicarbazide) with ortho-diketones (J. Thiele, Ann., 1898, 302, p.
/NH-NH 2 OC-CaHs /NH-N^ HN:C< + I -> HN:C< >C-C 6 H 6 ; \NH 2 OC-C 6 H 6 \N = C^CeHs Wolff has obtained a chloro-derivative by the action of potassium cyanide on diazoacetophenone and subsequent treatment with acid. The phen-a-triazines are more numerous, and are obtained either by the action of concentrated acids on the formazyl compounds (E. Bamberger, Ber., 1893, 26, p. 2786): C 6 H 6 N:N- X /N:N C 6 H 6 -NH-N^ C \N:C-COC6H 6 ; by the reduction of symmetrical acyl-ortho-nitrophenyl hydra - zines (e.g.;NOrC 6 H 4 -NH-NH-CHO); or in the form of dihydro derivatives by the condensation of aldehydes with ortho- aminoazo compounds (H. Goldschmidt and Y. Resell, Ber., 1890, 23, p. 487), or from the aminoazo compound and a mustard oil, the resulting thiocarbanilido derivative being heated with acetic acid (M. Busch, Ber., 1899, 32, p. 2960):
.N-C(SH):N-C 6 H 6 x.N-C:NC,H 6 C,H,f -> C7H 6 f +H 2 S.
C. Harries (Ber., 1895, 28, p. 1223) has also shown that as-phenylhydrazino-acetic esters, when heated with formamide and substituted formamides under pressure, yield dihydrotriazines:
C0 8 R 4_R'NH THO ^ CO NR' CH CH 2 -N(C 6 H 6 )NH 2 + * CH,-N(C,H 4 )-N The phen-a-triazines are yellow-coloured crystalline compounds of a somewhat basic character.
Derivatives of /3-triazines are formed by the action of nitrous acid on ortho-aminobenzylamines (M. Busch, Ber., 1892, 25, p. 445), or in small quantity by the action of nitrous acid on ortho-aminobenzoylphenylhydrazines (A. Konig and A. Reissert, Ber., 1899, 32, p. 782), the chief product in this latter reaction being an isoindazolone:
/CH 2 -NHC 6 H S /CHrNH-CeHs /CH 2 -NC,H 6 C 6 H/ -=>C 6 H 4 < ->C 6 H/ | N N=N aeHi-c NH 8 -HC1 The best drawn series of the triazines is the symmetrical or cyanidine series, members of which result from the condensation of acid anhydrides with aromatic amidines (A. Pinner, Ber., 1892, 25, p. 1624) :
*KH ^N-C^-CeHa -f +(CH 3 co) 2 o^c 6 H 6 .cf >N ; \NH 2 X N :CX-CH 3 or by the condensation of aromatic nitriles with acid chlorides in the presence of aluminium chloride (Eitner and Krafft, Ber., 1892, 25, p. 2263). In using benzoyl chloride in this reaction the condensation is found to proceed better if a little ammonium chloride be added :

Mention may be made here of cyanuric acid, HsCjNaOs, which contains the same ring system as the cyanidines. It was first prepared by C. Scheele and is formed when urea is strongly heated or when cyanuric chloride is treated with water. It is usually represented by the inset formula and is closely related to cyanic acid and cyamelide, the relationships existing between the three compounds being shown in the diagram (see also A. Hantzsch, Ber., 1906, 39, p. 139):
