Abstract

Transition metal catalyzed denitrogenative transannulation of a triazole ring has recently received considerable attention as a new concept for the construction of diverse nitrogen-containing heterocyclic cores. This method allows a single-step synthesis of complex nitrogen heterocycles from easily available and cheap triazole precursors. In this Minireview, recent progress of the transition metal catalyzed denitrogenative transannulation of a triazole ring, which was discovered in 2007, is discussed. One two three: Transition-metal catalyzed denitrogenative transannulation of 1,2,3-triazole rings has recently received increasing attention as a new concept for the construction of diverse nitrogen-containing heterocyclic cores in a single step (see scheme).
