The copper(I)-mediated anti-SN2‘ allylic substitution allows a highly stereoselective preparation of alkenylsilanes bearing a chiral center in the α-position with high transfer of chirality. These alkenylsilanes were converted into α,β-unsaturated ketones or into the corresponding boronic esters without loss of the chiral information.
