Reaction of trichloropyrimidine (5) with 4-(dimethylamino)pyridine or 4-(pyrrolidin-1-yl)pyridine in ethyl acetate in the presence of sodium tetraphenylborate yielded the tricationic pyrimidines (7) and (8). Applying the same reaction conditions to tetrachloropyrimidine (6) resulted in the formation of highly reactive 5-chloro substituted trications (9) and (10), which could be intercepted by anhydrous alcohols to give the dicationic species (11) and (12). Characterizations by means of ESIMS and FABMS, a semiempirical calculation and an X-Ray analysis were performed.
