A palladium-catalyzed allylic silylation using allylic alcohols and disilanes as precursors proceeds smoothly under mild and neutral conditions and is suitable for synthesis of regio- and stereodefined allylsilanes. The presented silylation reaction can be easily extended to include synthesis of allylboronates by change of the dimetallic reagent.
