2,4,6-Tris (biphenyl-4-yl) -1,3,5-triazine is a chemical compound that acts as a UV filter and is used in sunscreens . It is a broadband UV filter that offers protection against UVAII and UVB radiation with wavelengths from 290 to 340 nanometers .

With the 2,4,6-tris (biphenyl-3-yl) -1,3,5-triazine and the 2,4,6-tris (biphenyl-2-yl) -1,3,5-triazine still exist two isomeric trisbiphenyltriazines .

Extraction and presentation

The synthesis can be carried out by trimerization of 4-bromobenzonitrile and subsequent coupling of the intermediate 2,4,6-tris (bromophen-4-yl) -1,3,5-triazine with benzene boronic acid in a Suzuki reaction in the presence of a palladium catalyst .
