The palladium-catalyzed of triorganoindium reagents to propargylic esters afforded via an SN2' rearrangement allenes in good yields and with high regioselectivity. The reaction of chiral, nonracemic propargylic esters takes place with high anti-stereoselectivity providing allenes with high enantiomeric excess.
