A287224 Take all the digits of a(n) and a(n+1) then reorder them in a single integer: this will never produce a prime, no matter the rearrangement. 1

%N Take all the digits of a(n) and a(n+1) then reorder them in a single integer: this will never produce a prime, no matter the rearrangement.

%C The sequence is always extended with the smallest integer not yet present that doesn't lead to a contradiction.

%C The sequence is infinite and might be a permutation of the integers > 0.

%e The first two terms are 1 and 2 because neither 12 or 21 are primes; the next term cannot be 3 as 23 is prime; 4 is ok because neither 24 nor 42 are primes; the next term cannot be 3 as 43 is prime; etc.
