An unprecedented synthetic approach has been devised to efficiently synthesize regioselective 1,4-disubstituted 1,2,3-triazoles. This technique relies on the use of innovative metal-free highly basic N-heterocyclic imino catalysts. The experimental observations have been supported further by TD-DFT computational studies.
