A one-step conversion of allylic nitro compounds to substituted 2,3-dihydrofurans has been developed. Allylic nitro compounds, which are readily available from nitroalkenes and formaldehyde, underwent a double allylic substitution reaction catalyzed by a palladium complex to give 2,3-dihydrofurans in good yield.
