A step-economical one-pot nucleophilic catalysis/thermal Claisen rearrangement protocol for the direct synthesis of α-formyl-α-allylacetates from allylic alcs. and activated alkynes has been developed. The product α-formyl-α-allylacetates were further reacted in situ to give either protected enol ethers or β-hydroxy-4-pentenoates. [on SciFinder(R)]
