A one pot, multicomponent CuAAC reaction has been exploited for the safe generation of alkyl, benzyl or aryl linked polydentate pyridyl-1,2,3-triazole ligands from their corresponding halides, sodium azide and alkynes in excellent yields. The ligands have been fully characterised by elemental analysis, HR-ESMS, IR, 1H and 13C NMR and in two cases the structures were confirmed by X-ray crystallography. Additionally, we have examined the Ag(I) coordination chemistry of these ligands and found, using HR-ESMS, 1H NMR, and X-ray crystallography, that both discrete and polymeric metallosupramolecular architectures can be formed.
