*Procedure In a 100 mL rbf a solution of 1,4-Didodecyl-2,5-bis(2-(4-(2-(trimethylsilyl)ethynyl)phenyl)-ethynyl)benzene (772 mg, 0.95 mmol) in (3/1) DCM/methanol (40 mL) was stirred in presence of K2CO3 (1.313 g, 9.50 mmol, 10.00 eq.) for 1.5 h. Water was poured in the flask to dissolve the carbonate, then the solution was extracted twice with DCM; the combined organic phases were dried over anhydrous MgSO4 and vacuum evaporated to afford the crude product (pale yellow solid, 635 mg, 0.86 mmol, yield 90%). By NMR the material was assumed to be pure enough for the next step and only a small amount (52 mg) was recrystallized from MeOH yielding a white solid (36 mg) (Rf 0.42, (8/1) hexane/DCM)/
*Yield (%) 90 %
