A polystyrene-supported zinc ­bromide-ethylenediamine complex (PS-en-ZnBr2) was prepared by the reaction of chloromethylated polystyrene with ethylenediamine followed by treatment with ZnBr2 (eq. 1). PS-en-ZnBr2 catalyzed the reaction of acid chlorides with terminal alkynes in the presence of pyridine in toluene to give the corresponding α,β-acetylenic ketones in 75-99% yield (24 examples, eq. 2).
