Advances in Triazole Chemistry reviews the ever-widening scope of triazole chemistry across a range of scientific disciplines including polymer and materials science, organocatalysis, agrochemicals, and medicinal chemistry. Triazole is an exceptional structural motif with a range of applications that have promoted the development of synthetic strategies. These are presented along with recent eco-friendly methods for the synthesis of all types of triazoles. The book also examines recent notable applications in chemical ligation, peptidomimetics, carbohydrate chemistry, and nanotechnology. This comprehensive resource is ideal for researchers using triazoles in various scientific disciplines, as well as chemists working in the pharmaceutical, polymer, and agrochemical industries.
- Includes coverage of the role triazoles play in DNA synthesis
- Features comprehensive information on 1,2,3-triazoles and 1,2,4-triazoles and their subclasses, synthesis, and applications

Tahir Farooq did his doctorate under the supervision of Dr. Bengt Erik Haug and Dr. Leiv K. Sydnes from University of Bergen, Norway. During research work, he worked in the area of ''click chemistry'' for the synthesis of triazolic compounds. He followed Huisgen's 1,3-dipolar cycloadditions using Cu-catalysis and Ru-catalysis approach to synthesize various 1,4- and 1,5-disubstituted 1,2,3-triazoles. Currently, Dr. Farooq is using the least-explored 1,2,3-triazoles as plant growth regulators and stress protectants, and is interested to explore the role of 1,2,3-triazoles in abiotic stress management in crop plants.
