With deep respect and admiration, this paper is dedicated to Professor Victor Snieckus on the special occasion of his 80th birthday


A series of interesting 3-amido-dienynes was synthesized via tandem α-propargylation–isomerization of chiral allenamides with moderate E/Z ratio. Reactivities of E and Z isomers were examined.
