*Reaction file type CDX
*Procedure A 25 mL Schlenk flask containing 1,4-Diiodo-2,5-bis(octyloxy)benzene (152 mg, 0.26 mmol), 2-(4-(2-(4-(Methylthio)phenyl)ethynyl)phenyl)ethynylene (144 mg, 0.58 mmol, 2.23 eq.), PdCl2 (5 mg, 26 μmol, 10 mol%), PPh3 (14 mg, 0.05 mmol, 20 mol%) and CuI (10 mg, 0.05 mmol, 20 mol%) was evacuated and refilled with Ar before adding distilled benzene (5.0 mL). Triethylamine, TEA (0.20 mL, 158 mg, 1.56 mmol, 6.00 eq.) was then added dropwise; the reaction mixture was heated to 70 °C and stirred, in the darkness, for 13 h. The disappearance of starting materials (Rfs 0.65 and 0.42 respec., (2/1) hexane/DCM) was monitored by TLC. The solvent was evaporated, the residue was dissolved in DCM, washed with water and brine and dried over anhydrous MgSO4. After evaporation of the solvent, the crude title compound (261 mg) was column chromatographed on silica gel, using as eluent (5/4) DCM/hexane (Rf 0.46), yielding a mixture of product and impurities with similar Rfs (113 mg); further purification using as eluent (3/2) hexane/DCM (Rf 0.14) afforded the pure product (yellow solid, 86 mg, 104 μmol, yield 40%).
*Yield (%) 40 %
*Type of Yield Isolated pure product
