Stabilized AlHCl2·(THF)2 hydroaluminates RCCH with exceptional chemo-, regio- and stereoselectivity under efficient ZrCl 2(η-C5Me5)2 catalysis (2-5 mol%). The resulting vinyl alanes undergo palladium cross-coupling with a wide range of sp2 electrophiles (aryl, heteroaryl and vinyl halides/pseudohalides) in good to excellent yields.
