After revisiting earlier works reporting the regioselective synthesis of 1,5-disubstituted-1,2,3-triazoles via the addition of bromomagnesium acetylides to azides, much improved yields of the products were obtained for a wide array of azides and alkynes. The intermediates of that reaction can be trapped with different electrophiles to regioselectively form 1,4,5-trisubstituted 1,2,3-triazoles.
