To a stirred solution of ZrCp2Cl2 (321 mg, 1.1 mmol) in dry THF (5.0 mL) under argon at –80 °C, nBuLi (0.8 mL of 2.5 M solution in hexanes, 2.0 mmol) was added dropwise. Benzyl-(3-methylsulfanyl-prop-2-ynyl)-(2-pent-1-ynyl-benzyl)-amine (383, 347 mg, 1.0 mmol) in THF (3.0 mL) was added and the solution was allowed to warm to room temperature.  After 4 hours, at 0 °C, the resulting solution was added by cannula addition 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 then stirred vigorously for 12 hours, NaHCO3 (6.0 mL, 6M) was added to the resulting dark brown solution.  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 oil (319 mg,  0.65 mmol,  65 %).
