Treatment of 6-arylamino-1,3-dimethyluracils (I) with diazotized aniline gave 6-arylamino-l,3-dimethyl-5- phenylazouracils (11). Reductive cyclization of (11) with sodium dithionite in formic acid afforded 9-aryl- theophyllines (111). Catalytic reduction of (11) with palladium charcoal and subsequent in situ treatment with sodium nitrite and hydrochloric acid yielded 9- aryl-8-azatheophyllines (IV) .
