(Chemical Equation Presented) Practical and highly efficient methods for oxidative rearrangement of tertiary allylic alcohols to β-substituted α,β-unsaturated carbonyl compounds employing oxoammonium salts are described. The methods developed are applicable to acyclic substrates as well as medium membered ring substrates and macrocyclic substrates. The counteranion of the oxoammonium salt plays crucial roles on this oxidative rearrangement.
