A redox-efficient cyclodehydration of β-keto-N-acylsulfonamides with hydrazine salts provides 3,6-disubstituted-1,2,4-triazines. The mild reaction conditions tolerate a variety of sensitive functionalities. In addition, two approaches for synthesizing the requisite β-keto-N-acylsulfonamides are presented, which allow for the late stage incorporation of either the C3 or C6 substituent in a flexible manner.
