Hydroalkoxylations proceed by a different path than transition metal catalyzed hydrostannations and hydrosilylations. In the reaction of methylenecyclopropanes 1 with alcohols 2 in the presence of Pd°, the distal bond in the cyclopropane ring is cleaved, and allyl ether 3 is formed selectively. R1 = n- C7H15, PhCH2CH2; R2 = H, PhCH2CH2; R3 = PhCH2, CF3CH2, Et3Si, n-C4H9, etc.
