A protection method for cycloalkynes by the formation of (hexafluoroacetylacetonato)copper(i)-cycloalkyne complexes is disclosed. Various complexes having functional groups were efficiently prepared, which are easily purified by silica-gel column chromatography. Selective click reactions were realized through the complexation of cycloalkynes with copper.
