A general route to 1-chloro-1,2,4,6-selenatriazines with substuents on 3,5 positions has been developed by the reactions of N-imidoylamidines with selenium tetrachloride. The mechanism for these reactions is discussed according to the observed intermediates. At least two intermediates exist. One of the intermediates, 1,1-dichloro-3-trichloromethyl-4H-5-diisopropylphenyl-1,2,4,6-selenatriazine, was identified by 1HNMR, Mass spectroscopy and X-ray crystallography. 1-Chloro-1,2,4,6-selenatriazines were synthesized in high yield and fully characterized. Five 1-chloro-1,2,4,6-selenatriazine crystal structures were obtained. Reduction of 1-chloro-1,2,4,6-selenatriazines with triphenylamtimony immediately produced the corresponding selenatriazinyl radicals in hot acetonitrile. Pure radicals were obtained by in-situ crystallization as their dimers from reaction. Two crystal structures were obtained for 3-trifluoromethyl-5-p-tolyl-1,2,4,6-selenatriazinyl dimer and 3-trifluoromethyl-5-p-methyloxyphenyl-1,2,4,6-selenatriazinyl dimer. EPR spectroscopy measured all radicals coupling to three unique nitrogen atoms with 7 broad lines. There is no resolvable hyperfine coupling to 77Se, 37Cl/19F and phenyl protons.
