Methods involving zinc-lead exchange for the one-pot conversion of terminal acetylenes into alk-1-ynyllead(IV) triacetates have been developed, and examples of the in situ C-alkynylation of a number of carbon nucleophiles are reported. An attempt to extend the reaction to phenols by treating 2,4,6-trimethylphenol with phenylethynyllead triacetate led to formation of the spiro dienone 16, the structure of which was determined by X-ray diffraction.
