    Well you'll probably need to treat the alkyne with NaNH2 first, in order for it to react as a nucleophile towards the ketone. Otherwise, I'm not aware of any particular reactions of an alkyne in general and a ketone.

    We reacted tetraphenylcyclopentadiene with diphenylacetylene while heating with a blow torch in silicone oil. Thats it, there where no bases
