Exchanging BF[subscript 3] by CF[subscript 3]: The title reaction proceeds under exceedingly mild reaction conditions and provides 2-arylvinyl- and 2-heteroarylvinyl-substituted substrates with E/Z selectivities of more than 95:5. Experimental observations suggest that the reaction does not proceed through a transmetalation of the RBF[subscript 3]K species to the iron catalyst.
