Synthesis of acetylenic alcohols with calcium carbide as the acetylene source

Author affiliations

Abstract

Propargyl alcohols containing a terminal alkyne group are highly important and versatile intermediates. Here, we report the synthesis of these compounds from an inexpensive and renewable resource, calcium carbide (CaC2). No metal catalysts are required in this new protocol and the reactions take place under very mild conditions.
