Furfuryl ethers of tropolone and 4- and 5-isopropyltropolones afforded 3-(2-methyl-3-furyl)-, 3-(2-furylmethyl)-, 5-(2-furylmethyl)-, and 5-(5-methyl-2-furyl)tropolone derivatives. Although most of the thermolysates were structurally indistinguishable to the 3,3- or 5,5-sigmatropic products, the deuterium-labelling experiment proved all the pyrolysates to be intermolecular reaction products.
