As the purine group of compounds is known to exert a stimulative effect on the heart, the object of this research was to prepare certain compounds of the purine group for possible use in cardiotherapy. However, a serious rise in blood pressure often accompanies the use of these compounds, it would be desirable to combine them with some compound which would dilate the blood vessels.
