High catalytic activity of peptide nanofibers decorated with Ni and Cu nanoparticles through the synthesis of 5-substituted 1H-tetrazoles and N-arylation of amines

Arash Ghorbani-Choghamarani , Zahra Taherinia


A rapid development of a new methodology for decarboxylative N-arylation of carboxylic acid and preparation of 5-substituted 1H-tetrazoles catalysed by peptide nanofibers decorated with Cu and Ni nanoparticles is presented. Compared to the conventional aryl halides, benzoic acids are extremely interesting and environmentally friendly options for the synthesis of secondary aryl amines.
