Synthesis of alkynyl bromides


Recent Literature

The use of chloramine-B as the oxidant and KI or NaBr as the halogen source enables a direct oxidative halogenation of terminal alkynes to provide synthetically valuable 1-iodoalkynes and 1-bromoalkynes in very good yields under mild reaction conditions.

Using triethylamine as catalyst in Hunsdiecker reactions with N-halosuccinimides as Br+ or I+ source, cinnamic acids, and propiolic acids are converted to the corresponding α-halostyrenes and 1-halo-1-alkynes in good isolated yields within 1-5 min.

Organotrifluoroborates are rapidly and regioselectively converted into organic bromides in excellent yields under mild conditions, using sodium bromide in the presence of chloramine-T.
