6-Acetyl and 7-methyl groups of 6-acetyl-1,3,7-trimethyllumazine were oxidized to carboxylic acid by nitric acid. The oxidation of 6-acetyl-1,3,7-trimethyllumazine afforded 1,3,7-trimethyllumazine-6-carboxylic acid or 1,3-dimethyllumazine-6,7-dicarboxylic acid depending on the concentration of nitric acid.
