Summary of "NMR Study of the Tautomeric Behavior of N-(α-Aminoalkyl)tetrazoles."

N-(α-Aminoalkyl)tetrazoles exist in solution as equilibrium mixtures of N1 and N2 tautomers. The position of equilibrium depends significantly on the polarity of the solvent and the substituents in the tetrazole ring. Interconversion between individual tautomers is shown to proceed via tight ion-pair intermediates in which intramolecular recombination is faster than the intermolecular crossover since the latter probably requires solvent separation of ion-pair intermediates.

Transition-metal-free direct alkylation of aryl tetrazoles via intermolecular oxidative C-N formation.

A transition-metal-free synthetic approach for constructing alkylated aryl tetrazoles has been developed using n-Bu4NI as the catalyst and t-BuOOH as the oxidant. It involves the direct C-N bond forma...

One-Pot Synthesis of multi-Substituted 2-Aminoquinolines from Annulation of 1-Aryl Tetrazoles with Internal Alkynes via Double C-H Activation and Denitrogenation.

An efficient and one-pot synthesis of multi-substituted 2-aminoquinolines from 1-aryl tetrazoles and internal alkynes has been developed. The reaction involves cyclization of 1-aryl tetrazoles with in...

Differentiation of histidine tautomeric states using (15)N selectively filtered (13)C solid-state NMR spectroscopy.

The histidine imidazole ring in proteins usually contains a mixture of three possible tautomeric states (two neutral - τ and π states and a charged state) at physiological pHs. Differentiating the t...
