A great variety of mono- and polytopic β-cyclodextrin hosts have been easily synthesized by using the CuI-catalyzed azide–alkyne cycloaddition reaction. Of particular interest for their multibinding properties, dimeric and trimeric CD compounds were obtained by “clicking” mono-6-azido-β-cyclodextrin derivatives with flexible or rigid dialkynyl spacers. The reaction is general, high-yielding for some of the synthesized molecules (>80 %) and proceeds under mild conditions. (© Wiley-VCH Verlag… CONTINUE READING
