Cu(II)-catalyzed aerobic 6-endo-trig cyclizations provide 1,6-dihydropyridazines and pyridazines via the judicious choice of reaction solvent. Whereas 1,6-dihydropyridazines were obtained in good yields with MeCN as the reaction solvent, employment of AcOH directly afforded pyridazines in good yields.
