Synthesis and reactivity of beta-methoxymethyl enecarbamates.


Beta-methoxymethyl enecarbamates (e.g., 1) have been prepared in a single step from alpha-methoxy carbamates. In the presence of a mild Lewis acid, compound 1 underwent substitution with a variety of nucleophiles including indoles, electron-rich aromatics, silyl enol ethers, and 2-trimethylsilyloxyfuran.
