A general method for the alkenylation of alkyl electrophiles using nearly stoichiometric amounts of the air- and moisture-stable potassium organotrifluoroborates has been developed. Various functional groups were tolerated on both the nucleophilic and electrophilic partner. Reactions of highly substituted E-...
