A broadly useful acid-labile traceless azido linker for the solid-phase synthesis of NH-1,2,3-triazoles is presented. A variety of alkynes were efficiently immobilized on a range of polymeric supports by Cu(I)-mediated azide-alkyne cycloadditions. Supported triazoles showed excellent compatibility with subsequent peptide chemistry. Release of pure material (typically >95%) from the solid support was readily achieved by treatment with aqueous TFA.
