The allylation of several nitrogen and oxygen based nucleophiles with ethyl cinnamyl carbonate under mild conditions is described. The processes take place in the absence of added base and in the presence of the precatalytic system Pd(0)-triolefinic macrocycle/1,1′-bis(diphenylphosphino)ferrocene. The macrocyclic ligand plays a key role in the recovery of the metal in the form of the initial macrocyclic complex. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
