Efficient routes to 3-(1,2,3-triazol-1-yl)- and 3-(1,2,3-triazol-4-yl) pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidin-4-amines using a one-pot two-step reaction are presented. The two routes give easy access to two different isomers of 1,4-disubstituted triazoles and the target compounds are obtained from a variety of readily available aromatic and aliphatic halides without isolation of potentially unstable organic azide intermediates. Two compounds show activity towards the PfPK7 kinase (IC50 10-20 M) of P. falciparum, the organism responsible for the most virulent form of malaria, and can be regarded as hits useful for further development into lead compounds.
