A continuous process for the safe and effective preparation and purification 0f 1-acetyl-3,5-hexahydrotriazine TAX in kilogram quantities was developed. The major advantage of the process over other methodology is the control of a vigorous and often explosive reaction exotherm and the reduction of reaction volumes during the critical initial stages of the reaction. Preparative high pressure liquid chromatography HPLC yielded analytically pure TAX for environmental testing.
