Synthesis of 3,4-disubstituted and fused 1,2,5-selenadiazolo[3,4-b]pyrazines via previously unknown 3,4-diamino-1,2,5-selenadiazole has been achieved in moderate to high yields. The compounds synthesized were characterized by elemental analysis, MS and multinuclear (1H, 13C and 77Se) NMR, and the structures of 3,4-diamino-1,2,5-selenadiazole, 5,6-dimethyl[1,2,5]selenadiazolo[3,4-b]pyrazine and 5-phenyl[1,2,5]selenadiazolo[3,4-b]pyrazine were confirmed by X-ray diffraction. Electrochemical reduction of 5,6-R2-1,2,5-selenadiazolo[3,4-b]pyrazines (R = Me, Ph) into persistent radical anions (RAs) was studied by cyclic voltammetry and the RAs were characterized by EPR spectroscopy combined with DFT calculations
