This review summarizes the results of studies of reactions between tetrazoles and various electrophilic agents, published over the past twenty years. Where possible, mechanisms of the reactions are discussed in detail and consideration is given to how the rate and selectivity of processes are influenced by the nature of reactants, parameters of reaction medium, and by other factors.
