The condensation of o-substituted iodobenzenes, andα- andβ-iodonaphthalene, with ethyl 2-methyl-3-butyn-2-yl acetacetal, followed by hydrolysis and subsequent alkaline cleavage of the obtained alcohols, gave the corresponding ethynylarenes.
Aryl iodides, containing electron-acceptor groups in the o-position of the benzene ring, are more reactive in the acetylenic condensation than the unsubstituted iodobenzene.
