Iridium-Catalyzed Highly Regioselective Azide–Ynamide Cycloaddition to Access 5-Amido Fully Substituted 1,2,3-Triazoles under Mild, Air, Aqueous, and Bioorthogonal Conditions

Iridium-Catalyzed Highly Regioselective Azide–Ynamide Cycloaddition to Access 5-Amido Fully Substituted 1,2,3-Triazoles under Mild, Air, Aqueous, and Bioorthogonal Conditions
Nan Zheng, Wangze Song
A highly regioselective method to access 5-amido fully substituted 1,2,3-triazoles by iridium-catalyzed azide–ynamide cycloaddition under mild, air, aqueous, and bioorthogonal conditions is reported. The excellent regioselectivities may derive from the strong coordination between the carbonyl oxygen of ynamide and the π-acidic iridium. Since the iridium ion is insensitive to oxygen/water and exhibits low cytotoxicity, it could catalyze this reaction in both organic and biological environments efficiently. Preparation in gram-scale and application in carbohydrates highlight this method.
