Versatile strained alkyne modified water-soluble AuNPs for interfacial strain promoted azide–alkyne cycloaddition (I-SPAAC)

Author affiliations

Abstract

Versatile water- and organic solvent-soluble AuNPs that incorporate an interfacial strained alkyne capable of efficient pour and mix strain promoted interfacial cycloadditions with azide partners have been synthesized and carefully characterized for the first time. The use of XPS to quantitate the loading of the strained alkyne on the AuNPs is noteworthy. The reactivity towards the interfacial strain promoted azide–alkyne cycloaddition reaction was demonstrated by using azide-decorated polymersomes as bioorthogonal reaction partners.
