Although strained cycloalkynes have received considerable experimentaJ2 and theoreticaJ3 attention for many years, the smallest isolable rings are seven-membered.4 We report here the synthesis, chemical and structural characterization, and ab initio calculations of the first isolable5 six-membered ring containing a carbon-carbon triple bond.
