Nitroolefins have emerged as important building blocks for the synthesis of 1,2,3-triazoles, representing an important advance in the search for more efficient and selective alternatives of these units. Several types of reactional systems have been used highlighting the possibility of direct use of sodium azides (leading to the preparation of 1H-1,2,3-triazoles) as well as substituted azides and nitroolefins which may give substituted 1,2,3-triazoles. With the introduction of organocatalysis and metal catalysis in these systems, the control of the regioselectivity of this reaction has been described. However, up to the present moment, no reasoned mechanistic proposal has been described so far, justifying the proposed work proposal. Moreover, as will be shown, access to the 1,4-regioisomer is still unprecedented from nitroolefins. Therefore, one of the aspects of this work is to investigate the cycloaddition reaction (3 + 2) of nitroolefins under "metal-free" conditions. A systematic study will lead to the preparation of 1,4-disubstituted 1,2,3-triazoles by the use of alpha-nitroolefins. In another aspect of the work, we will use computational techniques and kinetic studies (including KIE, speed law determination, etc.) to elucidate the mechanistic processes under "catalyst-free" conditions, organocatalysis Brønsted), among others, of this reaction clarifying its reactivity and selectivity against the different reaction conditions.
