Wet silica gel promotes the chemoselective and almost complete allylation of aldehydes with 0.25-0.30 molar equivalents of tetraallyltin without an organic solvent, leaving no organotin compounds, requiring neither extraction nor chromatographic separation after the reaction, and enabling the repeated use of the silica gel.
