Reaction information

*#Reaction file  
*Reaction file type CDX
*Procedure   Heptadeca-5,12-diyn-9-yl mesylate (904 mg, 2.8 mmol) in dry DMF (8.5 mL) was added to KCN (365 mg, 5.6 mmol).  The reaction mixture was heated to 65 °C for 24 h.  The reaction mixture was poured into water (20 mL) and extracted with ether (3 × 25 mL).  The organic extracts were combined, washed with water (3 × 20 mL), dried (MgSO4), filtered and the solvent removed in vacuo to give the crude product as an orange oil (858 mg). Purification by column chromatography (SiO2, hexane/Et2O 10:1) gave the title compound as an orange oil (468 mg, 65%).
*Yield (%)  65
*Type of Yield Isolated product yield
