Control of the regioselectivity in palladium-catalyzed allylic substitution is still challenging. The authors report on the addition of hydroxyl­amine and hydrazone derivatives to 1,3-dienes or unsymmetrical allyl systems which yield the branched isomers predominantly or exclusively. The products of the reaction can be converted into secondary or tertiary carbinamines.
