Abstract

A highly general, efficient and simple methodology for the regioselective synthesis of aryl tetrazole amines has been explored. The present method involves consecutive desulphurization and \(C\hbox {-}N\) cross-coupling reaction. Cheap, readily available and air stable cobalt catalyst has been used for this methodology. In addition, the substrate scope has been demonstrated.
