(Chemical Equation Presented) 4-Bromomethylcoumarins (1) reacted with sodium azide in aqueous acetone to give 4-azidomethyl-coumarins (2), which underwent 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition with acetylenic dipolarophiles to give triazoles (3). These triazoles (3) have been found to exhibit interesting variations in the chemical shifts of C 3 -H and C 4 -methylene protons. Protonation studies indicate that the shielding effect of the C 3 -H of coumarin is due to π-electrons of the triazole ring, further supported by diffraction and computational studies.
