Abstract

Organic azides were prepared from primary amines in high yields by a metal free diazo-transfer reaction using 2-azido-1,3-dimethylimidazolinium hexafluorophosphate (ADMP), which is safe and stable crystalline. The choice of base was important in the diazo-transfer reaction. In general, 4-(N,N-dimethyl)aminopyridine (DMAP) was efficient, but a stronger base such as alkylamine or DBU was more appropriate for the reaction of nucleophilic primary amines. X-ray single crystal structural analysis and geometry optimization using density functional theory (B3LYP/6-31G**) were conducted to study the ADMP structure, and the diazo-transfer reaction mechanism was explained with the help of the results of these analyses.
