Diazo coupling reactions of aminopyrimidines can result in the formation of diazoamino compounds, arylhydrazones of pyrimidine-4-aldehydes by attack at a methyl group or 5-substitution depending on the pyrimidine, the conditions and the reagent. Unless precautions are taken to remove excess nitrous acid deamination can also occur. In the case of mercaptopyrimidines arylation of the mercapto group is the favoured reaction in many cases.
