A new method for the synthesis of dihydroimidazo[1,2-a][1,3,5]triazin-4(6H) -ones via copper(I)-catalyzed hydroamination was developed. In addition, for the first time, iodoalkynes were shown to participate in the copper(I)-catalyzed intramolecular hydroamination reaction with exclusive formation of E-isomers.
