An efficient and convenient solution-phase synthesis of a 1H-1,2,4-triazole library with potential agrochemical activity is reported employing microwave-assisted organic synthesis (MAOS) and continuous-flow microfluidic synthetic methods starting from commercially available 3,5-dibromo-1H-1,2,4-triazole (1). MAOS was used for the synthesis of 5-amino-3-bromo-1,2,4-triazole analogs 3 and for their 3-aryl derivatives 4 via Suzuki-Miyaura coupling with polymer-supported catalyst. A microfluidic hydrogenation reactor integrated into an automated parallel synthesis platform was built and utilized for the reductive dehalogenation reactions providing 5-aminotriazoles (5).
