An efficient C-O, C-S and C-C bond-forming sequence leads to functionalised compounds bearing sulfur-substituted quaternary carbons. Ynamides are employed as diazo-equivalents to access the [2,3]-sigmatropic rearrangements of allyl sulfonium ylides by a three-component chemoselective oxidation and intermolecular ylide formation.
