L-Ascorbic acid (1) is efficiently allylated at C-2 with primary and secondary allylic substrates by using palladium(0) catalysis. Hydrogenation of the resulting allylated compounds 6 affords L-ascorbic acid derivatives with saturated chains at C-2. © 1990, American Chemical Society. All rights reserved.
