Abstract: Components that click: A large number of diverse dendrimers (see scheme) was prepared in almost quantitative yield by the click‐chemistry transformation described in the title. In some cases filtration or solvent extraction was the only method required for purification in this highly efficient construction of the triazole units of the dendrimers.
