Sulfated tungstate a heterogeneous acid catalyst for synthesis of 4-aryl-<i>NH</i>-1,2,3-triazoles by 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of nitroolefins with NaN<sub>3</sub>

<p>A facile and new method for the synthesis of 4-aryl-<i>NH</i>-1,2,3-triazoles from nitroolefins and NaN<sub>3</sub> by 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction, employing a mild solid inorganic acid sulfated tungstate as a heterogeneous catalyst, has been developed. The protocol emphasizes broad substrate scope with many functionalities, less reaction time, stability to open air, easy work-up, and with good to excellent yields.</p>
