Abstract

The force dependence of the copper-free Huisgen cycloaddition between an alkyne and a surface-bound azide was examined in elastomeric nanoreactors. These studies revealed that pressure and chain length are critical factors that determine the reaction rate. These experiments demonstrate the central role of pressure and surface structure on interfacial processes that are increasingly important in biology, materials science, and nanotechnology.
