The combination of a copper-catalyzed C-O coupling reaction with a subsequent Claisen rearrangement allowed the generation of two adjacent quarternary stereocenters in a one-pot domino process. Furthermore, an experimentally simple stereoselective synthesis of of vinyl ethers is delineated using the same catalyst system.
