Reaction information

*#Reaction file
*Reaction file type CDX 

To a stirred mixture of 3-bromobenzalcohol (1.87 g, 9.55 mmol, 1 equiv.), bis-triphenylphosphine palladium dichloride (0.07 g, 0.1 mmol, 0.01 equiv.), copper iodide (0.02 g, 0.1 mmol, 0.01 equiv.) and triethylamine (25 mL) was added dropwise trimethylsilyl acetylene (1.50 mL, 10 mmol, 1.1 equiv.).  The reaction was heated to 70 °C and stirred for 2 days.

The reaction was diluted with diethyl ether (75 mL) and filtered through celite before being washed with water (4 x 100 mL) and brine (100 mL).  The diethyl ether layer was dried over magnesium sulphate, filtered and concentrated under reduced pressure.

The product was purified by column chromatography (silica gel, 25 % diethyl ether in hexane) to yield the pure product (1.60 g, 7.84 mmol, 82 %). 

*Yield (%) 82
*Type of Yield Isolated Product Yield
