A high yielding and robust protocol for the stereodefined synthesis of 1,3-dienes has been established through a hydrosilylation–Hiyama coupling strategy. In all cases the products were formed as single E,E isomers and conditions are tolerant of a wide range of functional groups not compatible with other methods.
