Oxyanionic sigmatropic rearrangements relevant to cyclooctadienone formation in penostatins I and F

Jansma, M. J.; Hoye, T. R. Org. Lett. 2012, 14, 4738–4741. 

"The results of several experiments designed to probe the energetic viability of a reaction path for generation of penostatins I (3) and F (4) via spontaneous [3,3]-sigmatropic rearrangement are reported. In particular, the enolate derived from the 2-vinyl-6-acyldihydropyran 8-cis gave cyclooctadienone 12 via facile anionic oxy-Claisen rearrangement, demonstrating the feasibility of such an event."
