Abstract: A silica supported sulfuric acid catalyzed [3+2] cycloaddition of nitriles and sodium azide to form 5-substituted 1H-tetrazoles is described. The protocol can provide a series of 5-substituted 1H-tetrazoles using silica sulfuric acid from nitriles and sodium azide in DMF in 72%–95% yield.
Keywords: silica sulfuric acid; 5-substituted 1H-tetrazoles; [3+2] cycloaddition
