To a stirring solution of ZrCp2Cl2 (0.292 g, 1.0 mmol) in pre-dried THF (5.0 mL) under argon at –80 °C, nBuLi (0.8 mL, 2.5 M solution in hexanes, 2.0 mmol) was added dropwise and stirred at –78 ° C for 10 minutes.  N-Benzyl-N,N-di(3-pentynyl)amine (311, 240 mg, 1.0 mmol) as a solution in THF (3.0 mL) was added, warmed to room temperature and stirred for 5 hours.  The reaction was quenched with methanol (3.0 mL) and a saturated solution of NaHCO3 (6.0 mL).  The product was extracted into diethyl ether (3 x 100 mL), the combined organic layer washed with water (4 x 50 mL), brine (50.0 mL), dried over MgSO4, filtered and the solvent removed under reduced pressure.  Column chromatography (SiO2, 0-100 % Et2O:petroleum including 5 % Et3N) afforded the title compound as a viscous yellow oil (0.191 g, 0.79 mmol, 79 %).
