The Cu(I)-catalyzed, 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction was applied successfully to the synthesis of small, F-18-labeled biomolecules, and an optimal condition was developed for one-pot, two-step reaction without any interim purifications. This technique was employed in various F-18-labeled, 1,2,3-triazole syntheses with high radiochemical yield.
