To a stirred solution of ZrCp2Cl2 (321 mg, 1.1 mmmol) in dry 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. N-Benzyl-N,N-di(3-heptynyl)amine (312, 222 mg, 1.0 mmol) dissolved in THF (3.0 mL) was added and the solution allowed to warm to room temperature.  After 4 hours, at 0 °C, the resulting solution was added to CuCl (198 mg, 2.0 mmol), sonicated previously and dried under vacuum (0.1 mm Hg), and DMAD (284 mg, 2.0 mmol).  The resulting solution was stirred vigorously for 3 hours, then quenched with methanol (5 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) afforded the title compound as a viscous oil (244 mg,  0.56 mmol,  56  %).
