A unique intramolecular Pd-catalyzed alkyne-alkyne coupling is presented. This transformation generates a strained, 1,3-bridged, macrocyclic enyne. The process was readily executed on gram scale, and the structure of the product was elucidated via X-ray crystallographic analysis. A mechanistic rationale for the observed chemoselectivity is provided.
