    • Abstract


      Two series of 5-(β-hydroxyethyl)-6-alkyl pyrimidines have been synthesised and thirty new compounds reported. Two of the pyrimidines have been found to possess significant tumour inhibitory activity against a solid rat tumour. No relationship between the length of alkyl chain at position ‘6’ in the compounds and their tumour inhibitory activity was observed.
