The first potassio triazine to be isolated and structurally characterised by X-ray diffraction exhibits an infinite, zig-zag, N-K propagated chain arrangement of alternating K+ cations and [(R(2)K)-] complex anions; the manner of its association sheds new light on why selected lithio alkyltriazines spontaneously dealkylate.
