[2,3]-Sigmatropic rearrangement processes of allylic ylides or their equivalents can be applied to a variety of different substrates and generate products of wide interest and applicability to organic synthesis. This review describes the development and applications of stereoselective [2,3]-rearrangement reactions in which a sub-stoichiometric amount of a catalyst is used in either the formation of the reactive intermediate or the [2,3]-rearrangement step itself.
