Stable 1,2,3-triazine 1-oxides are remarkably effective substrates for inverse electron demand Diels-Alder reactions. Base-catalyzed reactions with amidines provide pyrimidines, with β-ketocarbonyl compounds and related nitrile derivatives polysubstituted pyridines and with 3/5-aminopyrazoles pyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidines in high yield at room temperature.
