A copper(II)-catalyzed conversion of organoboron compounds into the corresponding azide derivatives complements existing procedures for the preparation of aryl azides and will greatly facilitate copper- and ruthenium-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition reactions for the preparation of diversely functionalized 1-aryl- or 1-heteroaryl-1,2,3-triazoles derivatives.
