*Reaction file type CDX
*Procedure Into a 100 mL Schlenk flask was added 1,4-Didodecyl-2,5-bis(2-(trimethylsilyl)ethynyl)benzene (3.524 g, 5.80 mmol), 1-bromo-4-iodobenzene (3.282 g, 11.60 mmol, 2.00 eq.), PdCl2 (247 mg, 1.39 mmol, 24 mol%), PPh3(730 mg, 2.78 mmol, 48 mol%) and CuI (221 mg, 1.16 mmol, 20 mol%), with stirring. The mixture was evacuated under high vacuum and refilled with Ar before the addition of distilled benzene (50 mL). 1,8-Diazabicycloundec-7-ene, DBU (20.8 mL, 21.19 g, 139.2 mmol, 24.00 eq.) was then added dropwise, followed by distilled water (0.17 mL, 167 mg, 9.28 mmol, 1.60 eq.). The reaction mixture was heated to 70 ºC and stirred in the darkness for 17 h, the disappearance of the starting material was monitored by TLC. The solvent was 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, a dark-brown oil (10.124 g), which was column chromatographed on silica gel, using as eluent (7/1) hexane/DCM (Rf 0.57), to obtain the pure product (yellow solid, 2.342 g, 3.03 mmol, yield 52%).
*Yield (%) 52 %
*Type of Yield Isolated pure product
