A multicatalytic isomerization/cross-coupling sequence enables a stereoselective coupling of readily available alkenyl methyl ethers with various Grignard reagents to provide highly substituted alkenes. A cationic iridium catalyst for the stereoselective isomerization of allyl methyl ethers to methyl vinyl ethers is compatible with a nickel catalyst for the subsequent cross-coupling.
