The reactions of 1,4-bis[2-(tributylstannyl)tetrazol-5-yl]benzene with a,w-dibromoalkanes were carried out in order to synthesise pendant alkyl halide derivatives of the parent bis-tetrazole. This led to the formation of several alkyl halide derivatives, substituted variously at N1 or N2 on the tetrazole ring. The crystal structures of 1,4-bis[(2-(4-bromobutyl)tetrazol-5-yl)]benzene (2-N, 2-N'), 1,4-bis[(2-(4-bromobutyl)tetrazol-5-yl)]benzene (1-N, 2-N') and 1,4-bis[(2-(8-bromooctyl)tetrazol-5-yl)]benzene (2-N, 2-N') are reported. Further discussion involves the structure of 1,4-bis(2-(6-bromohexyl)-2H-tetrazol-5-yl)benzene (2-N, 2-N') previously reported.
