A ascade addition-oxidative cyclization of nitriles with 2-aminopyridines or amidines was achieved in the presence of 1,10-phenanthroline-functionalized MCM-41-supported copper(I) complex [Phen-MCM-41-CuBr] as the heterogeneous and recyclable catalyst and air as the oxidant. The approach provides a wide range of 1,2,4-triazole derivatives in high yields.
