The addition of different nucleophilic compounds (aliphatic and aromatic alcohols, thiols and phosphines) to alkynylalkoxycarbene complexes has been studied. The reaction with smaller nucleophiles proceeds readily and regioselectively at the β-carbene position. With more substituted nucleophiles the reaction rate slowed down considerably. Addition of a catalytic amount of DBU (1,8-di-azabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene]) speeded up the reaction and improved the E/Z ratio. © 1992.
