uric acid, 4-benzylamino-5-benzylamino-allantoine, sodium persulphate, benzylamine.
Here we report the results of the study on the reaction of uric acid with benzylamine over sodium persulphate as the
oxidizer. The reaction is shown to furnish 4-benzylamino-5-benzylamino-allane-toine at a starting reagent molar ratio of 1:2, whereas
the 1:3 and 1:4 molar ratios afforded a mixture of 4-benzylamino-5-benzylamino-allantoine and 1-benzylamino-4-
benzylaminoallantoyne. The subsequent oxidation of 4-benzylamino-5-benzylamino-allantine with sodium persulphate over
ammonia yielded 4-benzylamino-allantoine; thus, the synthesis of this compound is through the two stages. In case benzylamine and
ammonia are injected immediately into the reaction with uric acid over the oxidizer, 4-benzylamino-allantoine is formed as well.
The results of this research are pretty interesting, and this research is to be continued.
