4,4-Dimethyl-2-pentyne is used in organometallic reactions for regioselectivity of its insertion into the Pd-C bond of cyclopalladated complexes. It is also used to prepare pyrimidine-dione by reacting with isocyanate in the presence of nickel/ N-heterocyclic carbene.
Pd-catalyzed coupling of acetylenes with iodoaromatic compounds with in situ cyclization has been employed as a route to various heterocycles. Several examples were reported with this alkyne in which a substituted oxygen heterocycle was obtained with good regioselectivity from o-iodo phenols, o-iodo benzyl alcohols or o-iodobenzoic acid derivatives: J. Org. Chem., 60, 3270 (1995):
