    Abstract

    The synthesis of N2-aryl 1,2,3-triazoles from 2,5-disubstituted tetrazoles was achieved under photochemical conditions. This simple and mild one-step reaction provides regiospecific access to 2,4,5-substituted 1,2,3-triazoles via a nitrile imine intermediate. Syntheses of alkyl and heterocylic derivatives were also investigated.
