Trialkyl phosphites mediate a convenient, efficient, and inexpensive deoxygenation of 1,2,3-triazine 1-oxide for the synthesis of 1,2,3-triazine derivatives in high yield. Triethyl phosphite is more reactive than trimethyl phosphite, and both phosphites form their corresponding phosphates in these reactions.
