Efficient procedures for the copper-catalyzed Huisgen cycloaddition reaction in aqueous media were developed using a novel water-soluble catalytic ligand, 2-{4-[(dimethylamino)methyl]-1,2,3-triazol-1-yl}cyclohexan-1-ol (AMTC). A series of aliphatic and aromatic substrates were tested and compared to the well-known tris(triazole)amine ligands (TBTA and THPTA). The effect of solvent composition was also investigated.
