Transmetallation of 2-tributylstannylbuta-1,3-diene with SnCl4 followed by Lewis base promoted addition of the resulting 1-trichlorostannyl-2,3-butadiene to aldehydes in the presence of DMF allows their buta-1,3-dienylation to take place at the C2 position with complete regioselectivity in high yields.
