Title

Preparation of Diallyl Ketals

Abstract

A general method for the preparation of diallyl acetals and ketals is reported. The reaction is performed well below room temperature, thereby eliminating any competing Claisen rearrangement. These mild reaction conditions also facilitate ketal formation on methyl levulinate 1 with no transesterification.
