ChemInform Abstract: Highly Regioselective N-2 Arylation of 4,5-Dibromo-1,2,3-triazole: Efficient Synthesis of 2-Aryltriazoles
Reaction of 4,5-dibromo-1,2,3-triazole with electron-deficient aromatic halides in the presence of potassium carbonate in DMF produces the corresponding 2-aryl-4,5-dibromotriazoles with high regioselectivity. Subsequent debromination of these triazoles by hydrogenation furnishes 2-aryltriazoles in excellent yields. Overall, this two-step process provides an efficient access to 2-aryl-1,2,3-triazoles.
- [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Reaction of 4-bromo-NH-1,2,3-triazoles 2 with alkyl halides in the presence of K(2)CO(3) in DMF produced the corresponding 2-substituted 4-bromo-1,2,3-triazoles 5 in a regioselective process. Subsequent Suzuki cross-coupling reaction of these bromides provided an efficient synthesis of 2,4,5-trisubstituted triazoles 3. In addition, reduction of the bromotriazoles by hydrogenation furnished an efficient synthesis of 2,4-disubstituted triazoles 8.0Comments 17Citations

- [Show abstract] [Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The regioselective N-alkylation of 1,2,3-triazoles 1-6 was studied. Good to excellent N-2 selectivity and high chemical yields for N-2-substituted 4,5-dibromotriazoles 7 were obtained with 4,5-dibromo- and 4-bromo-5-trimethylsilyl-1,2,3-triazoles. These building blocks can be readily converted to 2-mono-, 2,4-di-, and 2,4,5-polysubstituted triazoles 10-15, providing a general, protective, group-free method for the synthesis of N-2-substituted triazoles. Observed regioselectivities can be rationalized by a combination of Frontier Molecular Orbital, steric, and electrostatic directing effects on the heterocyclic scaffolds.0Comments 26Citations
