Naming and preparing alkynes
In this tutorial, Jay covers the nomenclature and preparation of alkynes, the acidity of terminal alkynes, and the alkylation of alkynes.
Note that if a terminal alkyne is produced, the strong base will deprotonate the alkyne to form an alkynide anion. A proton source (like H2O) must be added to regenerate the terminal alkyne.
