The study of the reactions of tertiary propargyl alcohols with sodium halides under oxidative conditions is presented. With sodium iodide, α-iodoenones were formed, however, with sodium bromide or chloride the α-haloenones were only formed in low yields under anhydrous conditions. Conversely, upon addition of water to the reaction mixtures, α,α-dibromoketones and α,α-dichloroketones were formed in good yields, but α,α-diiodoketones were not observed.
