A catalyst-free and environmently benign synthesis of highly conjugated 4-alkynylazoaromatic compounds from quinols having an alkyne is described. Formation of hydrazones by preferential condensation of quinols bearing many sensitive functional groups with mono-substituted hydrazines followed by dehydration under mild reaction conditions is the key to success of this method.
