Abstract

The reactions of aryl halides with 2,3,3-trimethyl-4-penten-2-ol in the presence of a palladium catalyst result in prenyl transfer from the alcohol to aryl halides via retro-allylation, yielding prenylarenes. Other multisubstituted allyl groups such as the 2,3-dίmethyl-2-butenyl group are introduced to aromatic rings.
