Even after decades of use, allenes can still be classified as an underutilized functional group. However, great advances in the chemistry of allenes have been made since the 1970s when they were regarded as difficult to prepare and very reactive, and not commonly encountered. Focusing on a particular functional group at first glance may seem trivial and obvious, but the importance of these types of studies is underscored by the fact that numerous Nobel prizes have been awarded for the study “alkenes in synthesis”. More importantly, transformations involving allenes can provide new scaffolds that lead to an expansion of chemical space where currently nearly half of all existing organic compounds can be described by a mere 143 molecular frameworks. This data supports the notion that we tend towards compounds and functionalities with which we are familiar and understand, but this, nevertheless, creates a limitation to our knowledge of our field.
