The diastereoselective [2,3]-Wittig rearrangement of a tertiary bisallylic ether (8) is described. The stereochemical outcomes for rearranged products were determined. The effects of reaction conditions on selectivities were investigated. Matsuccocus female sex pheromones 1-3 were efficiently synthesized via this rearrangement.
