Tris[(1-benzyl-1H-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)methyl]amine (TBTA) is a water-insoluble tris(triazolyl)amineligand and must be first dissolved in DMSO or DMF. It is able to be introduced shortly after the copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition reaction in order to mitigate thermodynamic instability of Cu(I) in aerobic media.
