Lemma 13.31.9. Let $\mathcal{D}$ be a triangulated category with countable direct sums. Let $K \in \mathcal{D}$ be an object such that for every countable set of objects $E_ n \in \mathcal{D}$ the canonical map

\[ \bigoplus \mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _\mathcal {D}(K, E_ n) \longrightarrow \mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _\mathcal {D}(K, \bigoplus E_ n) \]

is a bijection. Then, given any system $L_ n$ of $\mathcal{D}$ over $\mathbf{N}$ whose derived colimit $L = \text{hocolim} L_ n$ exists we have that

\[ \mathop{\mathrm{colim}}\nolimits \mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _\mathcal {D}(K, L_ n) \longrightarrow \mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _\mathcal {D}(K, L) \]

is a bijection.

**Proof.**
Consider the defining distinguished triangle

\[ \bigoplus L_ n \to \bigoplus L_ n \to L \to \bigoplus L_ n[1] \]

Apply the cohomological functor $\mathop{\mathrm{Hom}}\nolimits _\mathcal {D}(K, -)$ (see Lemma 13.4.2). By elementary considerations concerning colimits of abelian groups we get the result.
