Arylvinamidines (2-, 3- or 4-aryl-4-(N,N-dimethyl)amino-1-azabuta-1,3-dienes), generated from 1,1,5,5-tetramethyl-2- or -3-phenyl-1,5-diazapentadienium salts, cyclocondense orientation-specifically under two regioselections forming 1-4' + 4-3' and 1-2' + 4-1' bonds on exposure to ammonia. The initial cyclates aromatise eliminatively to give mixtures of diarylpyridines and arylpyrimidines. The 2-arylvinamidines do not participate as 2-centre reactants and their 4-aryl isomers not as 4-centre reactants in the cyclocondensations which appear to be stepwise and not concerted. Reasons for the selective participation appear to be that the required eliminations from the initial cyclates are disfavoured in the first case and that a geometric factor prevents cyclate-formation in the second.
