Copper(I) immobilized on 3-aminopropyl-functionalized silica gel catalyzed the reaction of terminal alkynes with benzyl- or alkyl halides and sodium azide in ethanol to give 1,4-disubstituted 1,2,3-triazoles in good to excellent yields. This procedure allows the conversion of unstable low-molecular-weight azides. Furthermore, the silica-supported copper could be recovered and recycled by simple filtration.
