New Aromatic Terminal Alkynes
Chemfiles Volume 3 Article 5
The terminal alkyne functionality has a wide range of applications including most recently the synthesis of spiropyran substituted 2,3-dicyanopyrazines1 and (±)-asteriscanolide,2 as well as conversion to enamines using resin-bound 2° amines.3 Sigma-Aldrich offers a number of aromatic alkynes that can further enhance the reactivity of the alkyne group resulting in many new reactions and products for organic synthesis and medicinal chemistry.
