Alkynyl amides were synthesized from a palladium-catalyzed coupling reaction of alkynyl carboxylic acids and amines under carbon monoxide. The reaction was conducted with palladium(II) acetate (5 mol-%) and silver(I) oxide (1.0 equiv.) in acetonitrile at 80 °C for 1 h. This method provides good to moderate product yields and good functional group tolerance towards ketone, ester, and nitrile groups.
