A palladium complex catalyzes two transformations in one pot: formation of allylsilane from allyl trifluoroacetate using hexamethyldisilane and subsequent imine allylation. A three-component reaction was developed where preformed imines were replaced with aldehydes and anisidine. Under these reaction conditions various aldehydes react smoothly to afford homoallylic amines.
