Rearrangement processes involving chlorine have been observed in the reaction of l,l,l-trichloro-2-hydroxy-4-miethyl- petene-3(1) with inorganic acid chlorides. Conversion of compound 2 to 3 represent a new example of a 1,3-chlorine shift. Formation of compound 4 from 6 is a new type of rearrangement involving 1,5-chlorine migration, and at the same time, is a good example of the role of kinetic vs. thermodinamic control in chemical processes. The transformations were found to proceed via radical intermediates.
