Cyclopentene oxide is used to prepare beta-amino alcohols by reacting with aromatic amines using bismuth trichloride as a catalyst.
Base-induced isomerization can give 2-cyclopentenol or cyclopentanone depending on the conditions. For discussion of the mechanism, see: J. Org. Chem., 61, 820 (1996), and references therein. Review of the rearrangement of epoxides to allylic alcohols: Org. React., 29, 345 (1983).
