The Friedel-Crafts reaction of cyanuryl chloride and some of its monosubstituted derivatives with toluene was studied. It is shown that the type and character of the substituent in the 6 position of the starting derivatives of cyanuryl chloride have a strong effect on the course of the reaction. The reaction of cyanuryl chloride and its phenyl and phenoxy derivatives with toluene leads smoothly to the formation of 2,4,6-tris- and 2-substituted 4,6-bis(4′-methylphenyl)-sym-triazines. 4,6-Bis(4′-methylphenyl)2-oxo-2,3-dihydro-sym-triazine is formed in the case of alkoxy-substituted cyanuryl chlorides. In the case of amino derivatives of cyanuryl chloride the reaction with toluene takes place only upon prolonged refluxing and gives the final products in low yields.
