A Zn(OTf)2-mediated solvent-free synthesis of propargylamines proceeds effectively via A3 coupling of aldehydes, amines, and phenylacetylene. The protocol tolerates a broad range of substituted benzaldehydes, enolizable aldehydes, and formaldehyde. Recyclability of the catalyst, low catalyst loading, and use of inexpensive catalyst are the key features.
