Ring-chlorination of 6-trifluoromethyluracil in phosphorus oxychloride in the presence of triethyl, tri-npropyl, and tri-n-butylamines was studied with respect to by-product formation. Comparisons were made with the results obtained by treating the preformed chlorinated pyrimidine with triethyl amine in boiling toluene. Amination of chloropyrimidines by tertiary amines takes place by a Hofmann type reaction with substituent orientation generally in the 2 position of the ring. Yields of products depended on the base and reaction time. The rate of substitution in the 2 position is significantly enhanced by the presence of the trifluoromethyl group in the 6 position as compared with a ...

The effect of the tertiary amines triethyl, tri-n-propyl, and tri-n-butylamines on the chlorination of 6-methyluracil by phosphorus oxychloride was studied. A comparison with the reaction of preformed 2,4-dichloro-6-methylpyrimidine and triethylamine in toluene was made. The reaction in phosphorus oxychloride in the presence of triethylamine afforded low yields of 2-diethylamino derivative after short heating periods and high yields of the 2,4-bis(diethylamino) derivative after 188 hours of boiling. Heating the preformed 2,4-dichloro-6-methylpyrimidine in toluene in the presence of triethylamine yielded primarily the 2-diethylaminopyrimidine along with a small amount of the 4-diethylamino isomer. After 188 hours, the product mixture ...

In a previous study it was shown that the acetyl moiety can be incorporated into the protein of purified synaptosomes (1). This process was inhibited by veratridine and the inhibitory effect was counteracted by tetrodotoxin. This suggested that the flux ofNa +may be related to the acetylation process. We now report that in a sodium free medium the amount of acetylation is increased and the inhibitory effect of veratridine (veratrine) is no longer evident. The addition ofNa +leads to a decrease in acetylation in the presence of veratrine. The presence of scorpion toxin has an effect similar to that of ...
