2-Hydroperoxy-4,6-diphenyl-1,3,5-triazine (Triazox)

2-Hydroperoxy-4,6-diphenyl-1,3,5-triazine (Triazox) is a bench-stable solid, that can easily be synthesized from cheap starting materials. Triazox is a relatively mild epoxidation reagent, that produces a nonacidic triazinone byproduct.

A bench-stable, solid triazine-based oxidizing reagent, 2-hydroperoxy-4,6-diphenyl-1,3,5-triazine (Triazox) can be synthesized from inexpensive starting materials. This reagents has been used for epoxidation of alkenes possessing acid-sensitive functionalities in good to excellent yields. The accompanying nonacidic triazinone coproduct can be easily removed by filtration.
