Palladium catalyzes a highly regio- and stereoselective hydrosilylation applicable to a broad range of electron-deficient alkynes. The resulting α-silylalkenes can be further transformated using particularly Hiyama coupling and stereoinverting iododesilylation followed by Suzuki-Miyaura coupling, which enables stereodivergent syntheses of α-arylenoates.
