Gold(I)-catalysed intermolecular iodoalkoxylation of allenes occurs in a regioselective and stereoselective manner to produce versatile iodo-tert-allyllic ether products. The products can be further elaborated through cross-couplings to yield highly substituted tert-allylic ethers. © 2011 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
