In the formula (1), M is a metal atom, R is a hydrogen atom, an alkyl group having 1 to 18 carbon atoms, an alkenyl group having 2 to 18 carbon atoms or an alkynyl group having 2 to 18 carbon atoms, and n is an integer of 1 or more.
A very small absorbance peak occurred in the region between 2500 and 2000 [cm.sup.-1], which was attributed to the stretching vibration of the alkynyl moiety.
Some active functional groups such as Br-, HS-, alkenyl, and alkynyl were grafted on the surface of CNCs correspondingly, which could be beneficial to further modify CNCs despite the very long reaction time (10 days) [101].
The peaks at S 6.42 ppm (hydrogen atom of triazole) of [sup.1]H-NMR spectrum and those at [delta] 126.4 and 123.5 ppm (carbon atoms of triazole) of [sup.13]C-NMR spectrum as well as the disappearance of alkynyl peaks in the [sup.1]H-NMR and [sup.13]C-NMR spectra demonstrated the successful occurrence of the click reaction (Figures S2 and S3).
