An experimentally simple additive-free Rh(iii)-catalysed direct alkynylation of alkenes has been developed. This protocol employs commercially available TIPS-EBX as the alkyne source, giving access to conjugated terminal enynes following a simple silyl-deprotection. This method has also been applied to arenes.
