The functionalization of a Csp2-H bond of an heteroarene with an alkyne represent one of the most attractive procedure for the late-stage functionalization of the aromatic core, due to the structural characteristics and synthetic versatility given by a triple carbon-carbon bond. The aim of this review is to cover the most significant results reported in the literature regarding the synthesis of alkynyl-substituted five-membered heteroarenes by selective direct Csp2-H alkynylation with 1-haloalkynes and analogues, or by cross-dehydrogenative alkynylation (CDA) with terminal alkynes, without making use of directing groups.
CH activation, dehydrogenative coupling, inverse Sonogashira coupling, selectivity, heteroarenes, palladium catalyst, azoles.
