A copper-based catalytic system for carboxylation of terminal alkynes: synthesis of alkyl 2-alkynoates

Author affiliations

Abstract

An efficient coupling of terminal alkynes and CO2 in the presence of alkyl halides can be achieved under ambient conditions using a copper/phosphine catalyst system, providing facile access to a variety of functionalised alkyl 2-alkynoates.
