The borazine ring of the title molecule, C7H21B3ClN5, shows a mild distortion from a planar to a flattened boat conformation. Steric effects due to the methyl and dimethylamine substituents appear to be the cause of this distortion.
The borazine ring in 2,4,6-tris(dimethylamino)-1,3,5-trimethylborazine (Rodriguez & Borek, 2006) shows a greater distortion from planarity towards a boat conformation compared to the title compound. For the synthesis, see: Beachley & Durkin (1974).
