Synthesis of 1,3-dienes
A wide range of aryl and vinylic halides react with 1,1-dimethylallene and potassium carbonate in the presence of Pd(dba)2 in N,N-dimethylacetamide to provide dienes in very good yields. Tetramethylallene, 1-methyl-1-phenylallene, 1-methyl-3-phenylallene, and 1-cyclohexylallene also react with aryl and vinylic halides to give diene products.

An efficient method for the preparation of various 2-aminomethyl-1,3-dienes was developed through the reaction of imines with an organoindium reagent generated in situ from indium and 1,3-dibromo-2-butyne. Three-component reactions of aldehydes, amines, and organoindium reagents gave successful results in a one-pot process.
