The use of diaryliodonium salts enables a simple, metal-free regioselective N2-arylation strategy for 5-substituted-1H-tetrazoles to provide 2-aryl-5-substituted-tetrazoles. Diaryliodonium salts with a wide range of both electron-rich and previously challenged electron-deficient aryl groups are applicable. A one-pot system achieves the synthesis of 2,5-diaryl-tetrazoles directly from nitriles.
