This article is dedicated to our distinguished friend and colleague Professor K. Peter C. Vollhardt.
Click chemistry involving copper-catalyzed azide–alkyne cycloaddition (CuAAC) is one of the most useful and powerful methods to construct metallodendrimers. The design of such strategies includes the choice of the copper(I) catalyst source which is critical in the case of the click synthesis of dendrimers. The 1,2,3-triazolyl-containing dendrimers that are produced provide useful intradendritic ligands that are active in supramolecular recognition and catalysis. This account dedicated to K. Peter C. Vollhardt summarizes work conducted mainly in the authors’ Bordeaux laboratory.
