Mechanisms of tetrazole formation by addition of azide to nitriles.

Abstract

It is well-known that azide salts can engage nitriles at elevated temperatures to yield tetrazoles; however, there is continued debate as to the mechanism of the reaction. Density functional theory calculations with the hybrid functional B3LYP have been performed to study different mechanisms of tetrazole formation, including concerted cycloaddition and… (More)
