This paper reports the synthesis and characterization of eight series of 1-aryl-4-(2-aryl-1-diazenyl)-piperazines (12 to 19). Several series of these triazenes have been synthesized by the diazotization of a primary arylamine followed by diazonium coupling with a secondary arylpiperazine . The arylpiperazines used in this study are: 1-phenylpiperazine, 1-(4-fluorophenyl-)piperazine, 1-(4-chlorophenyl-)piperazine, 1-(3,4-dichlorophenyl-)piperazine, 1-(2-methylphenyl-)-piperazine, 1-(4-acetophenyl-)-piperazine, 1-(2-pyridyl-)piperazine and 2-cyanophenylpiperazine. These new triazenes (series 12-19) have been identified with a cocktail of contemporary spectroscopic techniques, notably infra-red and nuclear magnetic spectroscopy, supported by high resolution electron ionization mass spectrometry.
Keywords: 1-Arylpiperazine, Aryldiazenylpiperazines, Diazonium Coupling, IR spectroscopy, Mass Spectrometry, NMR, Triazene.
