A rapid and stereodefined synthesis of MIDA–boryl vinylsilanes has been achieved through the hydrosilylation of an alkynylboronic ester. The E products which contain a silyl and boryl group can be selectively cross-coupled in a two-step bidirectional sequence to provide a rapid and high-yielding synthesis of complex styrenes.
