    Abstract

    The preparation of alkynes from carbonyl compounds via a one-carbon
    homologation has become a very useful pathway for the synthesis of acetylenic
    compounds, both internal and terminal. This tutorial review provides an overview of
    the different methods available for this transformation, including their scope and
    limitations, recent developments and applications in total syntheses.
