Calcium carbide (CaC2) as an important raw material has been widely used in inorganic chemistry, nano materials, supra molecular and other fields. In recent years, calcium carbide has been applied as an inexpensive, safe, green,and sustainable acetylene source in organic synthesis.This mini review summarizes the latest progress of calcium carbide as a surrogate of acetylene gas in organic reactions for the construction of C-C, C-N, C-S, and C-O bonds.
