Abstract

A visible-light-induced protocol for copper(I)-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition is reported. With the aid of semiconductor zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO NPs) as a heterogeneous photocatalyst, a copper(I) catalyst is formed. A variety of azide and alkyne components have been examined and the system tolerates different substrates in the click reaction well.
