Terminal and internal acetylenes were obtained in good to excellent isolated yields from carbonyl compounds by converting the carbonyl functionality into the enol nonaflate intermediate followed by elimination to give the C-C triple bond. The one-pot transformations were uniformly induced by phosphazene bases combined with mildly electrophilic nonafluorobutane-1-sulfonyl fluoride.
