Metal-catalyzed vinylic C-H activation enables a chemodivergent cross-coupling of acrylamides and vinyl acetates. Depending on catalysts, selective olefinic C-H vinylation and alkenylation reactions efficiently generate a range of highly synthetically valuable butadienes with good functional group tolerance in good yields.
