A copper-catalyzed [3 + 2] annulation of organic azides with (2,2-difluorovinyl)zinc chloride-TMEDA provides 1-substituted 4-fluorotriazoles in high yields via C-F bond cleavage. The difluorovinylzinc complex functions as an easy-to-handle equivalent of the highly reactive and difficult to handle fluoroacetylene (FC≡CH).
