Abstract

Simple and mild methods for the synthesis of allenes, employing indium- and zinc-mediated dehalogenation reactions of vicinal dihalides in an aqueous solvent, are described. By using these procedures, various allenylmethyl aryl ethers and monosubstituted allenes have been prepared in good to excellent yields.
