Efficient functionalization of Fumed silica by sulfonamides via copper-catalyzed Huisgen 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition (Click) reaction has been reported. Functionalization of Fumed silica by 3-azidopropyl groups leads to the formation of azide moiety as building blocks for Click reaction. Propargylation of three commercial sulfonamides (sulfadiazine, sulfadimidine, and sulfaquinoxaline), with propargyl bromide, leads to the formation of another building block for Click reaction. The Click reaction was catalyzed by freshly prepared Copper(I) iodide in DMF at room temperature after 72 hours. Antimicrobial activities of sulfonamides functionalized Fumed silica were measured against Staphylococcus aureus as gram-positive bacteria and Escherichia coli as gram-negative bacteria and checked by their Zeta potentials.
