Propargyl aza-Claisen rearrangement of 4-propargylaminoisoxazoles 1 proceeded in the presence of cationic gold(i) catalysts to give 4-amino-5-allenylisoxazoles 2 in good to high yields. The silyl group at the terminal alkyne and a cationic gold(i) catalyst bearing a sterically bulky ligand are essential for the generation of isolable allene intermediates. The N-protection of the generated 4-amino-5-allenylisoxazoles 2 allowed the isolation of 5-allenylisoxazoles 4 that have never been synthesized. N-Propargyl aniline 5 was successfully converted to the corresponding ortho-allenyl aniline 6 under the current reaction conditions.
