Simple azole substrates can be converted into N-substituted 2-aminoazole derivatives in the presence of nitrogen nucleophiles, lithium tert-butoxide as the base, and iodine to mediate carbon-nitrogen bond formation. This method proceeds at room temperature under an air atmosphere using a normal benchtop set-up, or can be performed conveniently using microwave irradiation.
