Metal-organic frameworks derived nanostructures with extraordinary variability, and many unprecedented properties have recently emerged as promising catalytic materials to address the challenges in the field of modern organic synthesis. In this contribution, the present work reports the fabrication of an intricately designed magnetic MOF composite based on Mn-BDC (manganese benzene-1,4-dicarboxylate/manganese terephthalate) microflakes via a facile and benign in situ solvothermal approach. Structural information about the as-synthesized hybrid composite has been obtained with characterization techniques such as TEM, SEM, XRD, FT-IR, AAS, EDX, ED-XRF, and VSM analysis. Upon investigation of catalytic performance, the resulting material unveils remarkable efficacy toward facile access of a diverse array of pharmaceutically active 1,2,3-triazoles from a multicomponent coupling reaction of terminal alkynes, sodium azide, and alkyl or aryl halides as coupling partners. In addition to a wide substrate scope, the catalyst with highly accessible active sites also possesses a stable catalytic metal center along with superb magnetic properties that facilitate rapid and efficient separation. The prominent feature that makes this protocol highly desirable is the ambient and greener reaction conditions in comparison to literature precedents reported to date. Further, a plausible mechanistic pathway is also proposed to rationalize the impressive potential of the developed catalytic system in the concerned reaction. We envision that findings from our study would not only provide new insights into the judicious design of advanced MOF based architectures but also pave the way toward greening of industrial manufacturing processes to tackle critical environmental and economic issues. © 2020 American Chemical Society.
