Simple, rapid, and "green" synthesis of copper(I) acetylides

Currently available methods for making aromatic acetylides and aliphatic acetylides compounds are difficult, tlme-consuming, and require environmentally hazardous solvents. We have found a new way to make copper(I) acetyildes in high yields by a simple, quick and "green" synthesis.
