1-Substituted tetrazole-5-thione, 1-Substituted 5-alkyl(aryl)sulfanyltetrazoles, Isothiocyanate
Treatments of organic isothiocyanates (R-NCS) with NaN3 in the presence of pyridine in water at room temperature gave corresponding various organic tetrazole-thiones, [S=CN4(R)] (R = alkyl or aryl). Isolated products are obtained as white or yellow solids in good yields (76-97%). The molecular structure by X-ray diffraction study for one of products shows the proposed formation. In addition, one-pot synthesis of 1- substituted 5-alkyl(or aryl)sulfanyltetrazoles has been demonstrated. Addition of alkyl or aryl halides into the mixture of organic isothiocyanates, NaN3, and pyridine in water at room temperature exclusively formed 1- substituted 5-alkyl(or aryl)sulfanyltetrazoles (S-derivatives) in high yields.
