Tetrazole formation by cycloaddition

Sn2

Click the structures and reaction arrows in sequence to view the 3D models and animations respectively

The azide and the nitrile undergo 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition to give the tetrazole anion. The anion is then protonated on workup to give the final tetrazole product.
