*Reaction file type CDX
*Procedure A 250 mL Schlenk flask containing 1,4-didodecyl-2,5-diiodobenzene (6.665 g, 10.00 mmol), PdCl2 (177 mg, 1.00 mmol, 10 mol%), PPh3 (525 mg, 2.00 mmol, 20 mol%) and CuI (381 mg, 1.00 mmol, 10 mol%), with stirring, was evacuated under high vacuum and refilled with Ar before adding distilled benzene (100 mL). Triethylamine,TEA (8.36 mL, 6.071 g, 60.00 mmol, 6.00 eq.) was then added, followed by trimethylsilylacetylene, TMSA (3.39 mL, 2.357 g, 24.00 mmol, 2.40 eq.) dropwise. The reaction mixture was heated to 70 ºC and stirred in the darkness for 20 h, the disappearance of starting material was monitored by TLC. The solvent was vacuum evaporated and the solid was dissolved in DCM, the solution was washed with water twice and dried over anhydrous MgSO4. Evaporation of the solvent afforded the crude title compound (7.298 g) which was column chromatographed on silica gel, using as eluent (20/1) hexane/DCM (Rf0.5), to obtain the pure product (yellowish solid, 3.524 g, 5.80 mmol, yield 58%).
*Yield (%) 58 %
*Type of Yield Isolated pure product
