The catalytic activity of 1D 2-Picolinic acid based Cu (II) coordination polymer (CP1) in click reaction was evaluated to generate 1,4-disubstituted 1,2,3-triazoles selectively. The CP1 catalyst loading of 2 mol% was applied successfully in the reaction for primary azides with diverse functionalities of terminal alkynes in green solvent (EG/H2O). Moreover, the one-pot, multicomponent click reaction involving benzyl bromide, sodium azide, and phenylacetylene was also catalyzed by CP1. The findings show that 1D 2-Picolinic acid based Cu (II) coordination polymer catalytic systems are highly efficient for green click triazoles synthesis. DFT calculation supported the plausible mechanism involved in the CP1 catalyzed click reaction.
