This paper reports the synthesis and characterization of eight series of 1-aryl-4-(2-aryl-1-diazenyl)-piperazines (12 to 19). Several series of these triazenes have been synthesized by the diazotization of a primary arylamine followed by diazonium coupling with a secondary arylpiperazine . The arylpiperazines used in this study are: 1-phenylpiperazine, 1-(4-fluorophenyl-)piperazine, 1-(4-chlorophenyl-)piperazine, 1-(3,4-dichlorophenyl-)piperazine, 1-(2-methylphenyl-)-piperazine, 1-(4-acetophenyl-)-piperazine, 1-(2-pyridyl-)piperazine and 2-cyanophenylpiperazine. These new triazenes (series 12-19) have been identified with a cocktail of contemporary spectroscopic techniques, notably infra-red and nuclear magnetic spectroscopy, supported by high resolution electron ionization mass spectrometry.

Keywords: 1-Arylpiperazine, Aryldiazenylpiperazines, Diazonium Coupling, IR spectroscopy, Mass Spectrometry, NMR, Triazene.

I am completely satisfied with the service I received from Bentham Science Publishers, right from the submission of our research paper in ‘Open Chemistry’ to its publication in the journal. The reviewers' and editor's comments were very helpful in improving the paper.

I take this opportunity to express my appreciation to the whole team of BSP!
