1,2,3-Triazoles were prepared in good to modest yields by cycloaddition of alkyl azides onto enol ethers under solventless conditions. The reaction can access ring-fused triazoles that are unavailable by azide-alkyne cycloadditions and is easily scalable. The 1,2,3-triazole products bear functionality that may be readily derivatized.
