Abstract

Propargylic alcohols, which possess inherent alkynyl and hydroxyl functional groups, are one of the most valuable bifunctional building blocks in the field of organic synthesis. The simple generation and conversion of these compounds into various valuable products make propargylic alcohols a powerful tool for synthetic organic chemists. These conversions have been largely achieved using transition-metal-catalytic systems, especially those using coinage metals (i.e., copper, silver and gold). However, few reviews focusing on these transformations have been published. This review summarizes the chemistry of propargylic alcohol moiety based reactions controlled by coinage-metal-catalytic systems.
