A bimetallic catalyst system composed of a group 4 metallocene difluoride and palladium dichloride enables a reductive cross-coupling of alkynes and aryl halides to provide (E)-alkenes in the presence of a hydrosilane and NaF. This reaction proceeds via an in situ generated alkenyl metallocene intermediate derived from the group 4 metallocene difluoride.
