A Cu/Pd-catalyzed borylallenylation of alkynes with propargylic carbonates and bis(pinacolato)diboron enables the synthesis of boryl-substituted ene-allenes. Densely (tetra-, penta-, and hexa-) substituted ene-allenes were synthesized in acceptable yield with high regio- and stereoselectivity. More important molecule structures can be obtained by subsequent modifications.
