*Reaction file type CDX
*Procedure  

General procedure C with 4-Methyl-N-(oct-3-yn-1-yl)-N-(phenylethynyl)benzenesulfonamide (380 mg, 1.0 mmol).  Purification by column chromatography (SiO2, hexane/Et2O 4:1) gave the title compound as a yellow oil (337 mg, 88%).

 

General procedure C: zirconocene mediated cocyclisation of ynamides

n-BuLi (0.88 mL of a 2.5 M solution in hexanes, 2.2 mmol) was added dropwise to a solution of Cp2ZrCl2 (322 mg, 1.1 mmol) in dry THF (5.0 mL) at −78 °C.  A solution of the appropriate ynamide (1.0 mmol) in dry THF (3.0 mL) was added dropwise at −78 °C.  The reaction mixture was warmed to room temperature and stirred for 5 h.  The reaction mixture was cooled to −78 °C and MeOH (10.0 mL) added.  After stirring at −78 °C for 1 h the reaction mixture was stirred at room temperature for 16 h.  The reaction mixture was poured into water (100 mL) and extracted with ether (3 × 50 mL).  The organic extracts were combined, washed sequentially with water (2 × 100 mL) and brine (100 mL), dried (MgSO4), filtered and the solvent removed in vacuo to give the crude product, which was purified as described.

*Yield (%)  88
*Type of Yield Isolated product yield
