By taking advantage of the orthogonal modes of reactivity of the alcoholic substrate through slight modification of the reaction conditions, a divergence in product selectivity was observed. At room temperature, p-TsOH·H2O-mediated tandem alkylation/cycloisomerization of the propargylic 1,4-diol with the β-dicarbonyl compound was found to selectively occur to provide the tetrasubstituted furan product. On the other hand, increasing the reaction temperature to 80 °C was discovered to result in preferential p-TsOH·H2O-catalyzed dehydrative rearrangement of the unsaturated alcohol and formation of the 2,3,5-trisubstituted furan adduct.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/96148
