Abstract

The synthesis protocol for the preparation of different arylpropiolic acids using the Negishi reaction and the addition of HCl to the alkyne moiety of these acids in subsequent esterification reactions using SOCl2 was examined.

  • The organozinc reagent was prepared by lithiation of ethyl propiolate with LDA, followed by subsequent transmetallation with anhyd ZnCl2. We also investigated the application of direct zincation of ethyl propiolate following a reported literature protocol. However, the procedure did not work out well in our hands for this case:
