A stereoconvergent, nickel-catalyzed Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling enables the conversion of a wide range of alkenyl ethers and aryl boronic esters for the synthesis of variously substituted styrene derivatives. A mixture of E/Z isomers of alkenyl ethers can be employed, thereby circumventing the stereodefined synthesis of starting materials.
