The reaction between 1,3,5-tris(N,N-dialkylamino)- benzene derivatives and 2 equiv of p-substituted benzenediazonium salts gives dicationic species which collapse to new benzimidazole derivatives with expulsion of p-substituted anilines. The presence of electron-withdrawing groups on the benzenediazo moiety of the dicationic species plays a key role in this unexpected ring closure reaction. The observed chemical behavior has been rationalized in terms of the already reported reversibility of azo coupling reactions and provided further evidence for it.

Abstract

The reaction between 1,3,5-tris(N,N-dialkylamino)- benzene derivatives and 2 equiv of p-substituted benzenediazonium salts gives dicationic species which collapse to new benzimidazole derivatives with expulsion of p-substituted anilines. The presence of electron-withdrawing groups on the benzenediazo moiety of the dicationic species plays a key role in this unexpected ring closure reaction. The observed chemical behavior has been rationalized in terms of the already reported reversibility of azo coupling reactions and provided further evidence for it.
