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.
