Ene-yne cross-metathesis from alkynes and ethylene is a useful method to produce substituted conjugated butadiene derivatives. If this method has been used with aliphatic alkynes, it has however never been used starting from diarylacetylenes as internal alkynes. We show that the ene-yne cross-metathesis catalyzed by the second generation Hoveyda ruthenium catalyst provides the 2,3-diarylbuta-1,3-dienes under 3 atm of ethylene at 100 °C. The scope and limitations of the reaction have been evaluated starting from unsymmetrical functionalized diarylacetylene derivatives hence leading to unsymmetrical 2,3-diarylbuta-1,3-dienes in a straightforward and environmentally acceptable manner.
