Second-generation Grubbs catalyst and Hoveyda-Grubbs catalyst are able to catalyze both crossed [2+2+2] cyclotrimerization of diynes with alkynes and di- or trimerizations of diynes. Selection of the reaction conditions allows us to favor one particular process. The process is selective when applied to unsymmetric diynes.
