A palladium-catalyzed decarboxylative alkenylation of stabilized enolates has been developed, which gives rise to alkenylated dicarbonyl products from enol carbonates regioselectively with concomitant installation of a quaternary all-carbon center. The broad scope of the reaction has been demonstrated by successfully utilizing a range of enolates and external phenol nucleophiles.
