A regio- and stereoselective magnesium-catalyzed hydrostannylation of internal and terminal alkynes provides the desired products with excellent yields and selectivities. A wide range of terminal and internal symmetrical and unsymmetrical alkynes can be converted using this alkaline earth metal catalyst as an effective alternative to transition metal catalysts.
