Formatted abstract
Matrix photolysis as well as flash vacuum thermolysis (FVT) of 9-azidoacridine affords 9-acridinylnitrene, which is characterized by its IR and ESR spectra and is photochemically inert. FVT above 600 °C yields a mixture of the five isomeric cyanocarbazoles. Microwave-assisted reaction with diethyl- and dipropylamines in solution affords acridinylformamidine and acridinylpropionamidine, respectively. Microwave-assisted reaction with dimethylamine causes nucleophilic displacement of the azido group. Microwave-assisted 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition with phenylacetylene yields the two regioisomeric 9-(4- and 5-phenyl-1,2,3-triazol-1-yl)acridines, whose structures were established by X-ray crystallography.
