This chapter reviews the literature available for nuclear substituted benzenoid hydrocarbons having more than one nitrogen atom and outlines the nomenclature and organization of these compounds. The system employed follows chemical abstracts since this is the primary source from which data for review was collected and such terms as arenediazonium, rather than aryldiazonium are retained. The 1-alkyl-2-aryldiazenes are considered separately from 1, 2-diaryldiazenes (azoarenes) and an attempt has been made to split the synthesis of closely related compounds, such as arylhydrazines and arylhydrazones. Although an attempt has been made to separate synthetic methods and some of the chemical reactions of the two groups of compounds, there is considerable overlap particularly in the application of these compounds in the synthesis of heterocycles.
