Mixture of HRh(CO)(PPh3)3 and Et3P catalyzes cross coupling reaction of unactivated allenes and 1-alkynes. CC bond formation takes place regioselectively at 2-position of allenes giving endo-(E)-enynes in high yields and selectivities. Added PEt3 promotes the reaction and enhances the regio- and stereoselectivity.
