We report the synthesis and photospectroscopic characterisation of intrinsically fluorescent triazole-appended cytidines. Fluorescence was found to be highly dependent on solvent conditions. X-Ray crystallographic data show the proton of the exocyclic amine of the nucleobase and the triazole N(3) engaged in a H-bond.
