The reaction of substituted N-phenylbenzimidoyl chlorides with N,N-dimethylcyanamide in the presence of titanium tetrachloride has yielded seven 4-(N,N-dimethylamino)-2-arylquinazolines substituted on the phenyl ring with electron donating or withdrawing groups. pKa values have been determined for these compounds and analyzed in conjunction with the Hammett σ constants to observe the influence of these phenyl substituents upon the basicity of 4-(N,N-dimethylamino)-2-arylquinazolines. The ρ value, single crystal X-ray analysis and 15N-nmr spectra give evidence about the preferential site of protonation in such systems.
