An efficient, green and atom-economical iron-catalyzed hydroamination of vinylpyridines with azoles has been developed. This reaction works smoothly for a diverse range of vinylpyridines and azoles, including diazoles and triazoles. The reaction was catalyzed by 5 mol % FeCl3 in toluene at 110 °C for 3 h to afford the anti-Markovnikov hydroamination products in moderate to excellent yields and excellent selectivities.
