Title of the idea: TBME and alkyne reaction under acidic condition
Author of the idea: Ramesha
Email of the author
Key words for search: Alkyne, TBME, addition, acid
Explain briefly the idea

Tert- Butyl methyl ether can add to alkyne under acidic condition to give interesting substituted acetone derivative. May require strong acidic condition like Sulfuric acid al low temperature (0-5 degree centigrade)

Why do you think this idea will work? TBME on acidic condition give butylene, which can add on to acetylene.
Do you have any experimental proof? NO
Literature reference No
Where it is useful? To synthesise substituted acetone, in both industry and acaemic research
Do you plan to work on this idea in near future? No
Interested in collaboration? No
Nature of idea: Synthetic organic chemistry
