The conversion of thiophenecarboxaldehyde to thienylacetylene by the Corey procedure is associated with a concentration-dependent polymerization precess and an alkylation of the thiophene at the 2 position. Improvements in the synthesis of 2,2’:5’,2”-terthiophene and its 5,2”-dibutyl derivative are reported.
