The authors describe a nice method for the preparation of chiral quaternary carbon stereocenters containing a fluorine atom. Silyl enol ether substrates reacted under palladium catalysis with allylic carbonates; the allylation products are obtained with high ee (>90% in most cases). The t-Bu-PHOX ligand (1) provided the highest selectivities.
