An efficient base catalyzed oxacyclization of Z-enynols has been developed under transition metal-free reaction conditions, thus resulting in a variety of new di-, tri-, and tetra-substituted furans. This approach allowed us to obtain 32 new compounds. Furthermore, DFT calculations were realized to depict a relationship between the natural population analysis and experimental results with alkyl or aryl groups for the synthesis of 2-benzylfuran. A one-pot Sonogashira/oxacyclization approach offers a flexible, robust and efficient alternative to base catalyzed cyclization is also carried out. © 2021 Wiley-VCH GmbH
