A three-component assembly of α-CF3 carbonyls, NaN3, and amines provides a variety of 5-amino NH-1,2,3-triazoles under transition-metal-free and open-air conditions. The method provides a general and operationally simple route to functionalized biologically important molecules. The NH-1,2,3-triazoles can be smoothly converted to N-2 alkylated 1,2,3-triazole products.
