*Reaction file type CDX
*Procedure A 50 mL Schlenk flask containing 1-bromo-4-(2-(4-(2-(4-bromophenyl)ethynyl)-2,5-didodecylphenyl)-ethynyl)benzene(2.275 g, 2.94 mmol), PdCl2 (51 mg, 0.29 mmol, 10 mol%), PPh3 (155 mg, 0.59 mmol, 20 mol%) and CuI (112 mg, 0.59 mmol, 20 mol%), with stirring, was evacuated under high vacuum and refilled with Ar before adding distilled benzene (30 mL). Triethylamine, TEA (2.46 mL, 1.785 g, 17.64 mmol, 6.00 eq.) was then added, followed by trimethylsilylacetylene, TMSA (1.00 mL, 693 mg, 7.05 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 evaporated and the solid was dissolved in DCM, the solution was filtered through Celite 521, washed with water twice and dried over anhydrous MgSO4. Evaporation of the solvent afforded the crude product (2.472 g). This was column chromatographed on silica gel, using as eluent (20/1) hexane/DCM (Rf0.19), to obtain the pure title compound (1.613 g, 2.00 mmol, yield 68%).
*Yield (%) 68 %
*Type of Yield Isolated pure product
