A Ph2P(O)-protected alkyne underwent dephosphorylation by treatment with MeMgBr in THF with Me3Si-protection untouched. The dephosphorylation followed by a transition-metal-catalyzed coupling of the resulting terminal a lkyne with aryl halides was carried out in a one-pot manner to afford the desired coupling product. Selective deprotection of Me3Si-/Ph2P(O)-protected alkynes enabled facile syntheses of expanded π-systems such as cyclic phenyleneethyny lenes and unsymmetrically substituted ditriazol.
