A novel and straightforward strategy for the synthesis of functionalized thiazoles from thioamides, ynals, and alcohols via a copper(I)-catalyzed three-component reaction has been described. Through the formation of new C–S, C–N, and C–O bonds in one pot, it is easy to produce various valuable thiazoles fixed with aryl or heteroaryl groups. In addition, the reaction also exhibits other unique advantages, such as high step economics, good functional group tolerance, and good regioselectivity.
