Phenols are 2,6-divinylated by treatment with ethyne at 100°C in chlorobenzene in the presence of SnCl4-Bu3N, the divinylation occurring predominantly to exclusively with phenol, alkylphenols and alkoxyphenols; an appropriate amount of the tin reagent and the correct reaction temperature are essential for the divinylation.
