Abstract

[Chemical equation presented] A highly regioselective method towards tertiary allylic ethers via gold(l)-catalyzed intermolecular hydroalkoxylation of alienes is disclosed. Preventing subsequent isomerizatlon of the tertiary allylic ether products to primary allylic ethers appears to be the key to achieving high regioselectivities. © 2010 American Chemical Society.
