A nonionic amphiphile (PTS) enables a simple approach to Pd-catalyzed stereoselective sp3-sp2 cross-couplings between alkyl and alkenyl bromides in the presence of zinc powder in water to give coupled products in good yields without prior formation of the organozinc reagents. The reaction is conducted at room temperature and tolerates various functional groups.
