Abstract

N-alkynylheterocycles (benzimidazole and indazole) are converted to triazoles by click chemistry, and the resulting triazoles react with [IrCl2Cp*]2. The benzimidazole-triazole coordinates in a monodentate fashion through the benzimidazole, whereas the indazole-triazole is bidentate through coordination of both heterocycles. Reaction of the benzimidazole-triazole with methyliodide gives a benzimidazolium salt that deprotonates on coordination to afford a rare example of a bidentate NHC–triazole.
