Blatters radical, 1,3-diphenyl-1,4-dihydro-1,2,4-benzotriazin-4-yl (1a, R =H), and several of its C-7 substituted analogues (R =CF3, Cl, Br, I, Me, OMe) were prepared in good-to-excellent yields through catalytic oxidation of the corresponding amidrazones by using palladium-on-carbon (1.6 mol%) and 1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene (0.1-1.0 equiv) in air. The reaction conditions were suitable for the preparation of Blatters radical on a one-gram scale in up to 87% yield. © Georg Thieme Verlag Stuttgart.
