Aryl diazonium salts are a class of important synthons in the field of organic synthesis due to their versatile reactivity and easy availability. Despite the widespread use of the denitrogenation-type cross-coupling, reduction, and azo-coupling reactions of aryl diazonium salts, the cycloaddition reactions of aryl diazonium salts have long been neglected. Noteworthy is that recent renaissance in this type of reactions has open powerful access to a diverse array of N-heterocycles. This minireview summarizes the latest development and applications of cycloaddition reactions of aryl diazonium salts as well as their new opportunity in organic synthesis.

Key words: Aryl diazonium salts, Cycloaddition, Tetrazoles, Triazoles
