Sulfadiazine: Sulfadiazine, ^1-2-pyrimidinylsulfanilamide (33.1.7), is synthesized by reacting 4-acetylaminobenzenesulfonyl chloride with 2-aminopyrimidine, which gives an acetanilide derivative (33.1.6). The subsequent hydrolysis of this product with a base leads to the formation of the desired sulfadiazine [5-8].
