The highly chemoselective preparation of new elaborated N-unsymmetrically substituted chlorodiamino-s-triazines and melamines, seen as building-blocks for iterative synthesis, is reported. It consisted of amination of cyanuric chloride with commercial C-2-substituted 2-aminopropane-1,3-diols (“serinols”), playing the role as “open-chain” unit and enantiopure (1S,2S)-2-amino-1-(4-nitrophenyl)propane-1,3-diols (“p-nitrophenylserinols”) based amino-1,3-dioxanes (“closed-chain” unit). Issued from the restricted rotation about C(s-triazine)-N(exocyclic) partial double bonds, seen as axes of (pro)diastereomerism, a global four-component rotational equilibrium involving the title compounds is discussed based on DFT computation and (VT) NMR data. Depending on π-deficiency of the s-triazine core, an (un)synchronised deblocking of the generated rotational diastereomers was observed. They are discussed as influence of intra-vs. intermolecular NH...OH (dynamic) interactions occurring in the “open-chain” unit and the anancomeric, axial vs. equatorial, amino-anchorage of the “closed-chain” unit. <alternatives> [...] </alternatives>
