Iron catalyzed highly regioselective dimerization of terminal aryl alkynes

Author affiliations

Abstract

Iron can catalyze head-to-head dimerization of terminal aryl alkynes to give the corresponding (E) selective conjugated enynes in high yields. A variety of substituted aryl acetylenes underwent smooth dimerization using catalytic FeCl3 and DMEDA in the presence of KOtBu.
