1-Bromo-3-methyl-2-butene is considered as a source of 3,3-dimethylallyl group and used in the preparation of natural products. It is also employed in the synthesis of base-modified pyrimidine nucleosides. Further, it is used in the preparation of (±)-eldanolide, 1-(3,3-dimethylallyl)-L-tryptophan and (±)-fumagillin, an antibiotic isolated from Aspergillus fumigattus.
3,3-Dimethylallyl (prenyl) building block group, useful in terpene synthesis. For use as an alkylating agent, see, e.g.: Org. Synth. Coll., 8, 381 (1993).
