An efficient and general protocol for the deacetonative Sonogashira coupling of aryl propargyl alcohols with aryl chlorides proceeded smoothly in the presence of a palladacycle and Xphos. The method enables a deacetonative Sonogashira coupling of electron-poor, electron-neutral, and even inactive sterically hindered electron-rich aryl chlorides.
