α-Allylation of the β-tetronate system was accomplished by direct attack of allyl halide on C-3 of the system in the presence of potassium carbonate in N,N-dimethylformamide or the Claisen rearrangement of allyl tetronates concomitantly formed in the preceding direct allylation. The chirality of natural L- amino acids was transferred into the β-tetronic acid system at the α-position via initial incorporation into the γ-position and subsequent α-allylation by application of analogous sequence of reactions.
