An efficient modular approach for the synthesis of propargylamine modified β-cyclodextrins has been developed. Using mono-(6-benzylamino-6-deoxy)-β-cyclodextrins, formaldehyde, and alkynes, mono-(6-(benzylpropargyl)amino-6-deoxy)-β-cyclodextrins have been synthesized through a three-component coupling reaction catalyzed by gold(iii) salt in water at 40 °C.
