The use of a (P,N) ligand enables a highly regioselective Ni-catalyzed hydroalkoxylation of 1,3-dienes. The optimized protocol operates under particularly mild conditions, provides access to a broad range of structurally diverse allylic ethers, and tolerates a number of sensitive functional groups.
