Lithium dialkynylcuprates [(RCequivalent toC)(2)CuLi], 1a-d, are easily generated and undergo conjugate additions to activated chromones giving 2-alkynylchroman-4-ones 4a-d, 13, 15c,d and 5, however, 1,4-additions to 3 proceed anomalously to give the eneynonitriles 6a-b and the bisbenzopyranopyridine 7.
