(Formula presented) Alkenylsilanols bearing methyl ((E)-1 and (Z)-1) or isopropyl ((E)-2 and (Z)-2)) substituents 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.
