Chemists explore the potential of alkynes in organic reactions that are catalytic in nature rather than consuming stoichiometric reagents, occur under ambient conditions, can tolerate various functional groups, and render "dial-up" reactivity when needed. They cover the catalytic isomerization of alkynes, catalytic cycloaddition reactions, catalytic nucleophilic additions and subtractions, and other reactions. Specific topics include the redox isomerization of propargyl alcohols to enones, alkyne metathesis in organic synthesis, the catalytic enantioselective addition of terminal alkynes to carbonyls, the catalytic dimerization of alkynes, and the alkyne zipper reaction in asymmetric synthesis.
