The kinetics was examined for the copper(I)-catalyzed Huisgen reaction. Despite the complex reaction pathway, it was successfully analyzed by the second-order kinetics with equal amounts of two organic substrates in the presence of 0.1 equivalent of copper catalyst, after dividing the time course into two stages, the early and late ones. Both stages gave almost the same activation parameters. The reaction of water-soluble alkyl azide (1) was 60 times as fast as that of water-soluble aromatic azide (4) at the early stage and surprisingly 822 times after 15 min reaction time at 30 ˚C.
