Abstract

An efficient synthesis and rearrangement of 3-methyl-1,4-pentadiyne-3-ol (1) using perrhenate- and Mo(VI)-catalysts is reported. The by-products 3,6-dimethyl-1,4,7-octatriyne-3,6-diol (2) and 3-ethynyl-5-methyl-1,6-heptadiyne-3,5-diol (3) were isolated and spectroscopically characterized. A possible reaction mechanism for the formation of the byproducts is discussed.
