Palladium pincer complex (1)-catalyzed stannylation of allyl chloride, phosphonate, and epoxide substrates (4a−h) could be performed with hexaalkylditin reagents (3) under mild neutral reaction conditions. This catalytic reaction proceeds via palladium(II) intermediates without involvement of allyl−palladium complexes, and therefore the allylstannane product does not interfere with the palladium catalyst. Use of a combined catalytic system (1 + 2) allowed the development of an effective one-pot procedure for allylation of aldehyde and imine electrophiles.
