The reaction of 1,4-dichloro-trans-2-butene with dipotassium salt of 5-hydroxytropolone in presence of 18-crown-6-ether afforded 5-(4-chloro-trans-2-butenyloxy)tropolone and 2,5-di(4-chloro-trans-2-butenyloxy)tropone which were transformed into furotropone derivatives by dehydrochlorination under the conditions of Claisen rearrangement.
