To expand the diversity of 1,3,5-triazine libraries to aryl and alkyl functionalities through the CC bond, we employed a novel orthogonal synthesis via Grignard monoalkylation or monoarylation of cyanuric chloride in solution to prepare aryl- or alkyl-substituted triazine building blocks. These aryl- or alkyl-substituted triazine building blocks were captured by a resin-bound amine, followed by amination and acidic cleavage with high purity. Herein, we demonstrate a novel orthogonal synthesis of a tagged aryl- and alkyl-triazine library on solid support, utilizing building blocks prepared via Grignard reaction in solution. Through incorporation of a triethylene glycol linker at one of the alternate sites on the triazine scaffold we explored an intrinsic tagged library approach. © CSIRO 2009.
