Visible-light-activated copper(i) catalyzed oxidative Csp–Csp cross-coupling reaction: efficient synthesis of unsymmetrical conjugated diynes without ligands and base

Author affiliations

Abstract

A novel visible-light-promoted copper-catalysed process for the Csp–Csp cross-coupling reaction of terminal alkynes at room temperature is described. The current photochemical method is simple, highly functional group compatible, and more viable towards the construction of bio-active 1,3-unsymmetrical conjugated diynes without the need of bases/ligands, additives and expensive palladium/gold catalysts.
