Well-defined diimine copper(I) complexes as catalysts in click azide-alkyne cycloaddition reactions

Molecules. 2013 Jul 26;18(8):8919-28. doi: 10.3390/molecules18088919.


A series of 1,4-disubstituted 1,2,3-triazoles have been prepared in high yields while respecting the stringent Click criteria. In these reactions, highly stable pre-formed complexes bearing diimine ligands were used.
