A modular concept for the generation of achiral and chiral non-racemic tetrahedral tectons from common precursors was developed. The tectons presented here are based on tetraphenylmethane or 1,3,5,7-tetraphenyladamantane core structures. They are obtained through high-yielding four-fold click reactions, using either the tetraazido or the tetraalkyne precursors. In most cases, the tetratriazoles are obtained as pure products after simple washing with water and methanol. The side chains of the tectons prepared include a self-complementary DNA dimer, obtained from a 3′-azidonucleoside and a phosphoramidite. The concept allows for a variation of the “sticky ends”, leading to tecton or ligand libraries.
