Cover Picture: Efficiency and Fidelity in a Click-Chemistry Route to Triazole Dendrimers by the Copper(i)-Catalyzed Ligation of Azides and Alkynes (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed. 30/2004)
Structural diversity is possible in dendrimer syntheses based on the highly efficient construction of triazoles from functionalized azides and alkynes. In their Communication on page 3928 ff., V. V. Fokin et al. describe the application of this CuI-catalyzed transformation, which proceeds in near-quantitative yields even to the third and fourth generation.
