Tosylhydrazones and allenylboronic acids underwent a transition-metal-free reductive coupling reaction. This process is suitable for synthesis of tetra- and pentasubstituted conjugated dienes. The corresponding allenyl-Bpin substrate showed a very poor reactivity. The reaction is suggested to involve coupling of the in situ formed diazo compound and allenylboronic acid. The intermediate formed in this coupling undergoes allenyl migration followed by protodeboronation to furnish a conjugated diene as major product.
