Vinylsilanes are stereoselectively converted into enamides by a sequence comprising epoxidation, nucleophilic ring opening of the resulting epoxysilanes with NaN3, and reduction of the azide, followed by a "one-pot" N-acylation/Peterson elimination process. This method is distinguished by its wide applicability.
