Aryl and vinyl nitriles have been prepared in very high yields from the corresponding bromides using palladium-catalyzed reactions under microwave irradiation. Furthermore, flash heating was used successfully for the conversion of these nitriles into aryl and vinyl tetrazoles by cycloaddition reactions. One-pot transformation of aryl halides directly to the aryl tetrazoles could also be accomplished.
