Abstract: Post-functionalization of 3,5-bis(2-pyridyl)-4-hydro-1,2,4,6-thiatriazine (Py2TTAH) and its synthetic precursors have been explored through alkylation, arylation, and coordination. While alkylation was initially pursued at the central nitrogen atom of Py2TTAH, functionalization instead occurred on the sulfur atom. Consequently, the proclivity of the sulfur towards alkylation and arylation was studied. Neutral 3,5-bis(2-pyridyl)-S-methyl-1,2,4,6-thiatriazine (S-Me-Py2TTA) and 3,5-bis(2-pyridyl)-S-ethyl-1,2,4,6-thiatriazine were achieved via either anionic or cationic intermediates, and all isolable species were fully characterized. In addition, an aromatic derivative, 3,5-bis(2-pyridyl)-S-phenyl-1,2,4,6-thiatriazine was obtained through reactions using hypervalent iodide as an electrophile. Functionalization of Py2TTAH and S-Me-Py2TTA was also explored through coordination with iron. The synthesis and crystal structures of two different iron complexes are described. The incorporation of boron with Py2TTAH and its precursor, N-2-pyridylimidoyl-2-pyridylamidine was also considered. Both compounds afforded the same boratriazine ring. Overall, this thesis describes the groundwork for future functionalization of the Py2TTA framework, and its potential for molecular materials applications.
