E or Z-substituted alkenylsilanols are converted to disubstituted alkenes by a palladium(0)-catalyzed cross-coupling reaction with aryl or vinyl iodides in the presence of tetrabutylammonium fluoride or hydroxide. Yields and stereoselectivities are generally high, and the reaction is compatible with a wide range of functional groups.
