To Tandem or Not to Tandem: Metal-Induced Rearrangements of Distannyl- and Silylstannyl-substituted Diallyl and Allyl Vinyl Ethers
31 December 2000 (online)
Triisobutylaluminium is effective in inducing the Claisen rearrangement of distannyl- and silylstannyl-substituted allyl vinyl ethers. While the ruthenium-catalysed tandem rearrangement of the corresponding diallyl ethers is possible, it is accompanied by side reactions and appears to be limited in scope to the silylstannyl-substituted compounds.
