1, 3-butadiynes, also known as the conjugated diynes, are important structures with rigid full-carbon sketch, and they could be found widely existing in nature, from the marine organism to interstellar space. Besides the special physiological activities, diynes could also found to be crucial in material science. Here this review will focus on the synthesis of diynes, and more importantly, the nature existence and bioactivities, as well as the applications and further developing trends of them.

Keywords: Butadiynylene, cadiot-chodkiewicz coupling, carbyne, diyne, glaser-hay coupling, interstellar molecule, material, natural product, synthesis
