Routinely employed syntheses of terminally deuterated alkynes often utilize strong bases (i.e., LDA, n-BuLi, or Grignard reagents) or low (i.e., -78 °C) or elevated (i.e., 56 °C) reaction temperatures; furthermore many of these procedures afford average yields and in some cases less than optimum deuterium incorporation. Herein we report the application of alternative extremely mild reaction conditions that readily afford quantitative yields of terminally deuterated alkynes in a matter of minutes with exceptional isotope incorporation at ambient temperature. © 2012 American Chemical Society.
