“Diazo” not needed: The title reaction results in the rearrangement of oxonium ylides, which were prepared from readily available homopropargylic allylic ethers instead of diazo compounds, through two different mechanisms: a concerted 2,3-sigmatropic rearrangement, or a stepwise 1,4-allyl migration followed by a Claisen rearrangement (see scheme).
