Fully loaded: Readily accessible and shelf-stable 1-bismuth(III) acetylides react rapidly and regiospecifically with organic azides in the presence of a copper(I) catalyst (see scheme). The reaction tolerates many functional groups and gives excellent yields of the previously unreported 5-bismuth triazolides. This uniquely reactive intermediate is functionalized under mild reaction conditions to give fully substituted 1,2,3-triazoles.
