Allyl-aryl coupling between allylic acetates and arylboronic acids took place in the presence of catalytic amounts of Pd(OAc)2, 1,10-phenanthroline, and AgSbF6 with high #-selectivity and E/Z-selectivity. The reaction of an optically active allylic acetates with an (-stereogenic center proceeded with excellent (-to-# chirality transfer with syn-selectivity and gave the corresponding optically active allyl-aryl coupling products with a stereogenic center at the benzylic position.
