New functionalized 2-oxabicyclo[2, 2, 1]heptane derivatives were synthesized for their potential biological activities by way of the intramolecular ether bond formation of plinol C that was obtained from linalool by a thermal ene reaction. The mechanism for the ether-forming reactions is discussed.
