A mixture of t-butylzinc halide and an aldehyde reacts with enyne to provide homopropargyl alcohol in a 1,2-addition manner. Under carbon dioxide at atmospheric pressure, three components (t-butylzinc halide, enyne, and carbon dioxide) combine in a 1:1:1 ratio to give allenyl carboxylic acids in a 1,4-addition manner. These products are useful for the synthesis of heterocyclic compounds such as α,β-unsaturated γ-butyrolactones.
