Abstract

A cross-coupling reaction between aryl- and vinylboronic acids and various allylic bromides proceeded without the use of a transition-metal catalyst to give the corresponding allylated products in moderate to good yields. The use of an inorganic base (KF or CsO and a small amount of water is crucial in obtaining good performance in the present transition-metal-free reaction.
