To a stirred solution of N-benzyl-N-(3-pentynyl)amine (308, 173 mg, 1.0 mmol), K2CO3 (1.0 g, 10.0 mmol) and MeCN (10.0 mL), benzenesulfonate (306, 238 mg, 1.0 mmol) was added dropwise, refluxed for 24 hrs, quenched with a saturated solution of NaHCO3 (20.0 mL).  The product was extracted into diethyl ether (3 x 25 mL), the combined organic layer washed with water (3 x 25 mL), brine (25.0 mL), dried over MgSO4, filtered and the solvent removed under reduced pressure. Column chromatography (SiO2, 0-50 % Et2O:petroleum including 5 % Et3N) afforded the title compound as a pale oil (100 mg, 0.4 mmol, 40 %).
