Solid acetylene reagent

Acetylene is one of the primary starting materials for chemical synthesis. However, acetylene is known as gas, which is highly flammable, dangerous and difficult to use in regular research laboratories. A novel solid acetylene regent was developed to make chemical applications safe and easy to use (doi: 10.1039/c7gc00724h).
