Abstract

Aryl halides can be easily transformed in a one-pot procedure into 4-aryl-1,2,3-triazoles with palladium/copper-catalyzed Sonogashira­-click reaction sequence, using trimethylsilylacetylene as acetylene surrogate.

When TBAF was added before the azide, 9% diphenylbuta-diyne was formed as by-product in the reaction mixture. With the addition of azide before the TBAF, we were able to suppress the homocoupling of the in situ formed terminal acetylene in every tested solvent. In EtOH-CH2Cl2 solvent mixture the amount of the diphenylbutadiyne side product remained below 1%.
