Substituted 2-phenethyl-1,2,4-triazoles, 1-phenethylimidazoles 3 and 1-phenethylbenzimidazoles 5 were synthesized from the reaction of compound 8 with tri-n-butyltin hydride in good yield. The reaction of substituted-2-phenethyl halide with 1H-1,2,4-triazoles, imidazoles and benzimidazoles gave a low yield. The yield was increased by the use of substituted-2-phenethyl-p-toluensulfonate.
